Davoli was one of Pasolini’s dearest friends and an iconic presence in his cinema.
With his unruly smile and curly hair, ‘Ninetto’ (as he is affectionately known) embodied the pure and irrepressible joy of the popular life. First cast as an extra in ‘The Gospel According to Matthew‘ (1964), he starred in many of Pasolini’s films, including ‘Hawks and Sparrows‘ (1966), ‘Oedipus Rex‘ (1967), ‘Theorem‘ (1968), ‘Che cosa sono le nuvole?‘ (1968), ‘La sequenza del fiore di carta‘(1969), ‘Pigsty‘ (1969), ‘The Decameron‘ (1971), ‘The Canterbury Tales‘ (1972).
In this conversation, Ninetto will take us on a journey through the memories of his friendship and work with Pasolini. Mr Davoli will be in conversation with Prof. Davide Messina and Dr Emanuela Patti (in Italian with English translation).
Preceeded by some readings of Pasolini’s poetry by Lucinda Byatt and Giorgio Granozio.
