For example, the fact that I have found my friends here, in the world of television, is not a beautiful thing.
By chance we have managed to go beyond the microphones and the cameras and reconstruct something that is in a sense real and sincere: but as a situation it is ugly, it is false. EB: Why? PP: Because television is a mass medium, which can only alienate us. We are speaking freely, without any inhibitions.
EB: Yes, it is true. You can say anything you want. PP: No, I cannot say anything I want. EB: Why not? And besides, objectively speaking, considering the ingenuousness or imprudence of certain spectators, I myself would not want to say certain things.
But apart from that, it is the mass medium itself: at the moment when someone listens to us speaking from his TV screen he has a relation of subordinate to superior towards us, which is a totally anti-democratic relation.
PP: Some spectators, due to their position of social privilege, can be cultural equals…. But in general the words that descend from the TV screen descend from on high, even the most democratic words, even the most sincere words.
Speech delivered from the screen is always ex cathedra speech, even when it is disguised as democratic.
EB: Many years ago, because of your book Ragazzi di Vita, you were one of the first Italian writers to be tried for obscenity in a court of law: in retrospect, what do you think of certain contemporary writers of erotic books and the flood of eroticism in the cinema, in the bookstores and on the magazine stands? PP: As far as I am concerned, eroticism in life is a very beautiful thing, and in art, too: it is an element that has a right to be in a work of art like any other. The important thing is that it should not be vulgar.
For example, women in films and comic strips are presented in a racist way, as if they were inferior beings … therefore, they are viewed in a racist way. Therefore, in that case, Eros is a purely commercial, vulgar thing.
EB: How is it possible for a Marxist like you to find inspiration for your works from the sayings of the Gospel or the testimonies of the disciples of Christ?
PP: Obviously, the way I look at the things of the world, at objects, is not natural, it is not secular: to some extent I take things as miraculous.
The consumerist couple P. Have you noticed how fashionable couples are today?
But it is a completely false and insincere couple, … what is this sudden romanticism? It is simply the new couple as revived by consumerism, because this consumerist couple downloads. Hand in hand they go to La Rinascente, to Upim… Europe and the Third World: the possible non existence of history: the modern world will be the synthesis between….
France sets itself as tamer ammaestratrice of rationality to the colonial populations. In fact it educates them very well.
France has taken nothing from them it has only given. It gave a model of education, rationality, civilization, but it did not know how to learn anything from them because this religious, irrational, prehistoric type that the Third World brings with it cannot be rationalized. Paris is a marvellous city that I admire … but you feel that it is farther away, more remote and archaic than a little city of any developing nation. The anthropological mutation P.
It is true that man is always the same, but it is also true that he changes. Now more than ever because at this moment we are threatened by a real anthropological mutation.
The true apocalypse is that technology, the era of applied science, will transform man into something different from what he was before. Something has happened now that has no equivalent in the history of man. And we are terrified by the idea that our children and descendants will no longer be like us. Culture saves from consumerism : I am privileged P.
Therefore, in reality, it is true for all times. Everyone hates the power he is subject to. Therefore, I hate the power of today, of , with particular vehemence. It is a power that manipulates the bodies in a horrible way, … it manipulates them, transforming their conscience, in the worst way, establishing new values which are alienating and false The values of consumerism, which accomplish compiono what Marx called genocide of the living, real previous cultures.

Not far from the splendour of tourist Rome are the slum suburbs. Here immigrants from village and countryside, lured to the capital by promises of work, gather and make a painful accommodation with the modern world.
