Subversives / Pasolini (2021)


Subversives is a dutiful homage to those writers who have always acted as a stimulus to my work.

G.Z.



Then slowly,

it is reborn in the violent light,
among the blind buildings, both new and the same,
a shout that only the dying,

can throw, in the final hour,
into this cruel sun that still shines
already softened by a little sea air...

Pier Paolo Pasolini

Il pianto della scavatrice in Le ceneri di Gramsci, Milano, Garzanti, 1957. Translation by William Wall.
