Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] On May 31, 1975, on the occasion of the inauguration of the Gallery of Modern Art in Bologna, the intellectual performance of Fabio Mauri (1926-2009) took place with Pier Paolo Pasolini as protagonist. At the top of the museum entrance stairs, against the door, Pasolini sits on a high stool and on his chest, dressed in a white shirt, his film Il Vangelo secondo Matteo is projected. The contribution proposes a reading of the work in dialogue with Mauri's entire research and, through comparisons with other works as well as with the portrait category, aims to identify a perspective of analysis, not exhausted in Pasolini's physical and symbolic centrality, but open to dialogue between different linguistic forms, such as performance and cinema, the relationship between author and work as well as between director and audience, suggesting the consideration of Intellectual as a dialectical exercise that goes beyond the specificity of the subject involved and therefore the genre of the portrait.
