the first European festival on creativity

2011 Programme

Evento n.37

Sonia Bergamasco, Fabrizio Gifuni

A quiet sunny day. Attilio Bertolucci and Pier Paolo Pasolini, a friendship in verse

The human and poetic dialogue between Attilio Bertolucci and Pier Paolo Pasolini deals with the recognition of the other as different and absolute, the respect of the other, who is so close and at the same time so distant. Both poets lived for years in the same building in the Monteverde district of Rome, and developed an intimate friendship that expressed itself in poetry. On the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of Attiliio Bertolucci, the voice of two popular actors, Sonia Bergamasco and Fabrizio Gifuni, will take turns exploring the mystery of that friendship through the sound of two of Italy’s great poetic voices..

She took part in a number of major film productions directed, among others, by Silvio Soldini, Giuseppe Bertolucci, Liliana Cavani, Giuseppe Piccioni, and M.T. Giordana.
