  5. Pier Paolo Pasolini

Pier Paolo Pasolini (March 5, 1922 – November 2, 1975) was an Italian film director, poet, writer, and thinker, as well as an actor, journalist, novelist, dramatist, and political figure.

Pasolini was a divisive figure in Italy owing to his blunt demeanor, and his legacy is still debated. He slammed petty-bourgeois ideals and Italy’s rising “totalitarianism of consumption,” combining socio-political polemics with a critical exploration of forbidden sexual issues. He was a key protagonist of the postwar Roman cultural scene, as well as an established major personality in European literary and film arts.

Notable filmography: Accattone, The Gospel According to St. Matthew, The Hawks and the Sparrows, Oedipus Rex,Teorema, Pigsty, Medea, The Decameron, The Canterbury Tales, Arabian NightsSalo, or the 120 Days of Sodom
