Dialogue between authors: Emanuele Trevi and Laurence Plazenet discuss the life of an artist and impossible love

Since his death in 1975, Pier Paolo Pasolini hasn't ceased to inspire the imagination of our contemporary novelists. Essayist, poet, writer, filmmaker, he's been one of the greates modern artists and one of the last critical consciences in Europe. For the inauguration of the "Pasolini Rome" expo (at the Cinémathèque until January 26, 2014) on the city and the suburbs where he and his novels lived, and for the projection of his movies (until the 2nd of December), we have arranged a conversation between two authors, both winners of the European Union Prize for Literature, organised by the European Commission and the European Federations of Booksellers, Publishers and Writers. Emanuele Trevi is a critic, writer and journalist; he recently published an essay on the impossible meeting with Pasolini through his flamekeeper, Pasolini's muse Laura Betti (Qualcosa di scritto, Ponte alle Grazie), just translated in French by Marguerite Pozzoli for Actes Sud. Laurence Plazenet, professor of classical literature and CNRS member, wrote a troubling novel about impossible passion, L’amour seul (Albin Michel, 2005).

Organised by the Institut culturel italien de Paris on October 16, 6:30 pm.
