SALO O LE 120 GIORNATE DI SODOMAA thesis on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s last filmBy Ana Grgic
“Italy is marching into well-being which is egoism, stupidity, uncultured ness, gossip, moralism,compulsion, conformism: to lend oneself in any way to contribute to this marcescence is, now,fascism.”“L'Italia sta marcendo in un benessere che è egoismo, stupidità, incultura, pettegolezzo, moralismo,coazione, conformismo: prestarsi in qualche modo a contribuire a questa marcescenza è, ora, ilfascismo.”Pier Paolo Pasolini,Vie Nuove n. 36,6 settembre 1962
Introduction: “Either express oneself and die, or remain unexpressed andimmortal.”-P.P.Pasolini
In every society, in every age exists an individual voice which engages itself socially and politically to render this world a more humane place to live in; a voice that contributes tocultural development of humanity, a sense to hi existence, which often gets lost in theeveryday banal struggle of survival. Pier Paolo Pasolini contributes to our society as a politically, socially and intellectually engaged individual, with his poetry, writing,criticism and cinema. Until his death, Pasolini had not given up in his search for the truth,not given into easy answers but continued to ask the question ‘why’, and his legacyremains as an example to follow to this day.Pasolini first experienced life as a young poet in the region of Friuli in Northern Italy,where he was born and his family had lived.In this period he wrote poetry in Friuliandialect as well as Italian, exemplifying hislove for the traditional and pleasant. Thedialect represented some form of oppositionto fascism: “Fascism didn’t tolerate dialects, signs of the irrational unity of the countrywhere I was born, inadmissible and impudent reality in the heart of nationals.”
The useof dialect also represented an attempt in which he would deprive the Church of itscultural hegemony on the underdeveloped masses.
