Pasolini acquatico e felice (Archivio Toti Scialoja)


“Pasolini acquatico e felice” (Pasolini by the water contended) is a man in a bathing costume, proclaiming his affinity with the body of water that starred in many of his masterpieces and, indeed, in the story of his own life: the river Tiber. That quintessentially urban, Roman Tiber of the 1950s, with its beaches, its bathing clubs, its rowboats and springboards; its swimmers, fishermen, fish, and infinite other mysteries. A time when the land simply rolled gently from the city into the water to re-emerge on the other side, with no physical barriers to mark the river out as separate from everyday life.
