Italy is more strongly influenced by the experiences of migrants than many other European countries. This includes an historically ongoing internal migration from the south to the north, which is strongly echoed in neo-realism; a mass emigration mainly to western Europe and North and South America that is connected with mafia films, among others, in Italy's collective imaginary; as well as a more recent immigration influx from the southwestern Mediterranean, which is dealt with at a film leve...

I saggi qui raccolti hanno a che fare con l’inevitabilità del movimento che caratterizza il vivere. La vita è costantemente (in) divenire, (in) transizione, (in) cambiamento, attraversata e attraversante; pensare, allora, significa anche, e forse soprattutto, fare i conti con questo divenire. O, forse, il pensiero non solo si occupa di questo divenire, ma consiste in questo divenire. Appare così piuttosto ingenua la pretesa di voler comprendere la realtà a partire da sue ipostatizzazioni, anziché chiedere al pensiero di rendere per quanto possibile esplicito il divenire che avviene attorno e dentro ciascuno di noi, prendendo posizione, sempre in divenire, solo in conseguenza di un simile ragionamento. In tempi di crisi, come quello attuale, si assiste alla disperata ricerca di punti di riferimento duraturi, stabili, auspicabilmente immobili. Forse, invece, ogni crisi, valoriale o politico-sociale che sia, si può risolvere e prevenire solo a partire dalla considerazione che di fisso e certo, vi è solo il cambiamento.

Quanto più la sovranità confonde i propri tratti nel potere anonimo dei mercati finanziari, tanto più la vita di interi popoli resta non solo offesa, ma anche denudata, esposta allo sguardo pietrificante della nuova Gorgone. Un libro capace di scuotere la coscienza del lettore, spingendolo al diretto contatto con la vita offesa dei nostri giorni. Roberto Esposito, "la Repubblica" A creare il mondo pietrificato è un potere impalpabile, immateriale, astratto. Il libro di Revelli, di rara efficacia, invita a riflettere sulle caratteristiche permanenti del potere e sull'enorme difficoltà di incatenarlo con la forza del diritto. Maurizio Viroli, "il Fatto Quotidiano" C'è qualcosa di più selvatico dei mercati a briglia sciolta? Si tratta di allestire un nuovo rito sacrificale, pronto a qualsiasi saccheggio e a qualsiasi violenza, questa volta sull'altare dell'ottimizzazione delle risorse. Il bottino c'è ma non si deve vedere, la preda viene braccata ma dirlo non è chic. Bruno Accarino, "il manifesto"

Written between 1963 and 1967, The Divine Mimesis, Pasolini's imitation of the early cantos of the Inferno, offers a searing critique of Italian society and the intelligentsia of the 1960s. It is also a self-critique by the author of The Ashes of Gramsci (1957) who saw the civic world evoked by that book fading absolutely from view. By the mid-1960s, Pasolini theorized, the Italian language had sacrificed its connotative expressiveness for the sake of a denuded technological language of pure communication. In this context, he projects a 'rewrite' of Dante's Commedia in which two historical embodiments of Pasolini himself occupy the roles of the pilgrim and guide in their underworld journey. Densely layered with poetic and philological allusions, and illuminated by a parallel text of photographs that juxtapose the world of the Italian literati to the simple reality of rural Italian life, this narrative was curtailed by Pasolini several years before he sent it to his publisher, a few months prior to his murder in 1975. Yet, many of Pasolini's projects took the provisional form of "Notes toward..." an eventual work, such as Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine), Appunti per una Oresteiade africana (Notes for an African Oresteia), and Appunti per un film sull'India (Notes for a Film on India). The Divine Mimesis has a kinship to these filmic works as Pasolini himself ruled it 'complete' though still in a partial form. Written at a turning point in his life when he was wrestling with his poetic 'demons, ' the true center of gravity of Pasolini's Dantean project is the potential of poetry to teach and probe, ethically and aesthetically, in reality. "I wanted to make something seething and magmatic," Pasolini declared, "even if in prose." In this first English translation of Pasolini's La divina mimesis, Italianist Thomas E. Peterson offers historical, linguistic, and cultural analyses that aim to expand the discourse about an enigmatic author considered by many to be the greatest Italian poet after Montale. Published by Contra Mundum Press one year in advance of the 40th anniversary of Pasolini's death. * In the history of twentieth-century poetry, there is no other poet besides Pasolini who has more tenaciously interrogated his own 'I, ' more persistently contemplated it, admired it, examined it, analyzed it and dissected it in order then to show its suffering entrails to the world, as they beg for understanding, affection, and pity. - Giorgio Barberi Squarotti *"

Presented here for the first time in English is a remarkable screenplay about the apostle Paul by Pier Paolo Pasolini, legendary filmmaker, novelist, poet, and radical intellectual activist. Written between the appearance of his renowned film Teorema and the shocking, controversial Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, St Paul was deemed too risky for investors. At once a political intervention and cinematic breakthrough, the script forces a revolutionary transformation on the contemporary legacy of Paul. In Pasolini’s kaleidoscope, we encounter fascistic movements, resistance fighters, and faltering revolutions, each of which reflects on aspects of the Pauline teachings. From Jerusalem to Wall Street and Greenwich Village, from the rise of SS troops to the death of Martin Luther King, Jr, here—as Alain Badiou writes in the foreword—‘Paul’s text crosses all these circumstances intact, as if it had foreseen them all’. This is a key addition to the growing debate around St Paul and to the proliferation of literature centred on the current turn to religion in philosophy and critical theory, which embraces contemporary figures such as Alain Badiou, Slavoj Žižek and Giorgio Agamben.

All'inizio del 2013 si sono verificati due eventi inediti: la rielezione a capo dello Stato di Giorgio Napolitano e il successo elettorale del Movimento 5 Stelle. Questi due fatti hanno segnato una cesura che ha concluso il Novecento politico degli italiani. A partire da questa novità interpretativa, l'autoreripercorre l'intera storia repubblicana. Ricostruisce, tra l'altro, i modi con cui le famiglie politiche hanno concorso all'organizzazione del potere e alla vita collettiva, realizzando una prima socializzazione politica di massa. E come, pur essendo i soggetti fondatori della democrazia e della sua stabilità, siano pressoché scomparse.

Most people outside Italy know Pier Paolo Pasolini for his films, many of which began as literary works—Arabian Nights, The Gospel According to Matthew, The Decameron, and The Canterbury Tales among them. What most people are not aware of is that he was primarily a poet, publishing nineteen books of poems during his lifetime, as well as a visual artist, novelist, playwright, and journalist. Half a dozen of these books have been excerpted and published in English over the years, but even if one were to read all of those, the wide range of poetic styles and subjects that occupied Pasolini during his lifetime would still elude the English-language reader. For the first time, Anglophones will now be able to discover the many facets of this singular poet. Avoiding the tactics of the slim, idiosyncratic, and aesthetically or politically motivated volumes currently available in English, Stephen Sartarelli has chosen poems from every period of Pasolini’s poetic oeuvre. In doing so, he gives English-language readers a more complete picture of the poet, whose verse ranged from short lyrics to longer poems and extended sequences, and whose themes ran not only to the moral, spiritual, and social spheres but also to the aesthetic and sexual, for which he is most known in the United States today. This volume shows how central poetry was to Pasolini, no matter what else he was doing in his creative life, and how poetry informed all of his work from the visual arts to his political essays to his films. Pier Paolo Pasolini was “a poet of the cinema,” as James Ivory says in the book’s foreword, who “left a trove of words on paper that can live on as the fast-deteriorating images he created on celluloid cannot.” This generous selection of poems will be welcomed by poetry lovers and film buffs alike and will be an event in American letters.
