Rome Film Festival to Feature Pier Paolo Pasolini Photo Exhibit
ROME -- The International Rome Film Festival will pay a special honor this year to Pier Paolo Pasolini with a special photo exhibit produced under the auspices of two production designers who worked with him on multiple films.
The Pasolini exhibit follows on the heels of two similar events focusing on Federico Fellini and Sergio Leone in the previous two editions of the six-year-old festival.
The exhibit, which will include scores of photos from award-winning cinema photographer Angelo Novi, was produced by the Rome festival in conjunction with the Bologna Film Archive.
It will be curated by designers Dante Ferretti and Francesca Loschiavo, who worked with Pasolini on Medea, I racconti di Canterbury (The Canterbury Tales), and Il Decameron (The Decameron). The same pair helped curate the Fellini exhibit last year.
The festival gets underway Thursday and runs through Nov. 4.
