PASOLINI IN NEW YORK (2019)
by Pier Paolo Pasolini
In 1969, Pier Paolo Pasolini visited New York for the second time and was interviewed by Guiseppe Cardillo, the longtime director of Instituto Italiano di Cultura of New York, during which he recalled his childhood and his life as a poet, film director, critic and political activist. The recording of this interview was unavailable to the public until it was discovered and rescued by Luigi Fontanella, himself a poet, novelist, Pasolini scholar and professor at SUNY Stony Brook.
This book presents the interview in full, newly translated from the Italian by Michael Palma, and with an introduction by Luigi Fontanella. In an edition of 500 copies.
