The Roman house of Pier Paolo Pasolini in via Giovanni Tagliere 3 in the Rebibbia district, where the poet lived in the early 1950s, it was bought at auction by the film producer Pietro Valsecchi who will donate it to Roma Capitale. “It was Valsecchi himself – commented the Mayor of Rome, Roberto Gualtieri – who gave me the news a little while ago and confirmed that the house will be donated to the Municipality of Rome. I want to thank Valsecchi for this beautiful gesture of love towards the city and of a great intellectual like Pasolini on the occasion of the hundredth anniversary of his birth “. “I would like to thank Pietro Valsecchi for his decision to buy Pasolini’s house and donate it to the Municipality. As soon as we take possession of the property we will work to make it a place of memory of that great writer who was Pier Paolo Pasolini”, added the councilor for culture of Rome Capital Miguel Gotor. To push Pietro Valsecchi to buy the Roman house of Pier Paolo Pasolini in the Rebibbia district, where the poet lived in the early 1950s, and to donate it to Roma Capitale, “was first of all the desire to do something for the city.
We who are ‘cultural operators’ must produce culture to make historical memory. Pasolini was one of the greatest intellectuals of the twentieth century, it seemed right to restore this strong symbolic value to the citizens. Creating cultural structures is important for young people and for the city “, explains the film and television producer, founder of Taodue Film with his wife Camilla Nesbitt, to ANSA.
