A reflection on what the “heretic” figure of Pasolini meant to 50s-70s Italian culture. “Salò” is covered to justify the importance of the “heretic” cinema; his works are discussed in the light of an unusual religious ideology; Pasolini’s controversial contribution to cinematographic semiotics is re-appraised; and his texts are meticulously analysed, proposing a comprehensive way to interpret several of his stories (and entire body of literary works).
