Bandung man / l'uomo di Bandung

  • Bandung is the Indonesian city where on 18-24 April 1955 a meeting of twenty-nine Asian-African states took place with the view of opposing colonialism or neo-colonialism, dissociating from the Cold War, and promoting Afro-Asian economic and cultural cooperation, as well as Neutralism and the Non-Aligned Movement. The two boys quoted in the poem - the Indian Revi and the Kenyan Davidson - appear as characters, respectively, in the travel notebook "L'odore dell'India" (1961) and in the screenplay "Il padre selvaggio" (on which Pasolini began to work in 1962). 'L'uomo di Bandung' was published first in the journal "Julia Gens" in 1964. This is the first time the poem appears in English and the translation is by Robert S.C. Gordon.
