Although situated in a variety of disciplines and theoretical approaches, the literature on Pier Paolo Pasolini’s work and his relationship with colonized, formerly colonized, and decolonizing countries often struggles to understand his political and intellectual stance on the major historical processes of the last century. Some important commentaries have focused on the relationship between Pasolini and “alterity” and on his “heretical Orientalism,” to use Luca Caminati’s apt expression; on Pasolini’s “Southern response” to the colonial question; on cultural issues that emerged in formerly colonized countries after independence; and on the critical rethinking of the relationship between race and nation-state that Pasolini stages in his films. However, more than forty years after his death, our understanding of the modes of expression through which Pasolini defined his position toward decolonization processes remains incomplete.
