Pier Paolo Pasolini


Pier Paolo Pasolini achieved fame as a film director, but he was first and foremost a poet. His novels and screenplays of Roman lowlife led to his own successes in cinema as director: Accatone, Mamma Roma, The Gospel according to Matthew and his famous 70s trilogy Decameron, Canterbury Tales and A Thousand and One Nights.
