Categories: Culture and creativity -Visual Arts -Literature and Publishing
On the centenary of Pier Paolo Pasolini's birth, the international tour of the exhibition dedicated to the multifaceted genius of the 'poet from Casarsa' continues.

As part of the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s birth, the Consulate General of Italy in Vlore will open Davide Toffolo‘s ‘Interview with Pasolini‘ exhibition on 14 July.

More than 70 plates of the graphic novel of the same name that the Friulian author created in 2002 – also known as “Pasolini” in the 2015 Rizzoli Lizard edition – and which was published in French and Spanish editions in addition to the Italian edition, will be on display. There will also be some drawings made by Davide Toffolo for the live performance “Pasolini, L’incontro” and a review of the covers of the various editions in which this work has been printed.

In the book, Davide Toffolo establishes an imaginary conversation with an alter ego of Pasolini (a double, perhaps a ghost): the words uttered by the Pasolini of the comic strip actually derive from essays, interviews, and authentic speeches of the intellectual, coming to constitute an original and captivating introduction to his critical reflection and essayistic production.

The exhibition project is conceived by Paola Bristot, lecturer at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Venice and president of the Viva Comix association.

The exhibition is promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, which makes it possible for it to be circulated in its foreign offices, and is part of the celebrations for the centenary of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s birth, intended to pay homage to the multifaceted genius of one of the 20th century’s greatest intellectuals. A writer, journalist and essayist, playwright, film director and screenwriter, as well as a translator and painter, Pasolini left behind a varied and multifaceted production, at times controversial and always a profound observer of the social and cultural changes taking place in post-World War II Italy.

Davide Toffolo, born in Pordenone in 1965, he is one of the most important graphic novel authors on the Italian scene. He signed the books “Carnera”, “Pasolini”, “Il Re Bianco”, “Il Cammino della Cumbia”, “Graphic novel is dead” and the recent “L’ultimo vecchio sulla terra” on texts by the Roman artist and poet Remo Remotti. Creator of the ‘Cinque Allegri Ragazzi Morti’ series, well known as the voice and guitarist of the indie band Tre Allegri Ragazzi Morti, and founder with Enrico Molteni and Luca Masseroni of the label La Tempesta Dischi, which has produced and published much of Italy’s independent music.
