This publication honours the multitalented Italian film director Pier Paolo Pasolini (1922–1975), who was born in Bologna and became a polemical figure due to his outspoken leftist politics and controversial analyses of public affairs. The book centres around Pasolini’s epic autobiographical poem “Poeta delle ceneri”, published here in a revised translation by American poet Stephen Sartarelli.
