About Pier Paolo Pasolini
I started very early my studies on Pier Paolo Pasolini as a Film Director, and published my first book about him in 1994. Since then, I went on with my studies, and gave many conferences conferences around the world, published several articles in Italian and foreign scientific magazines, Encyclopedias, and published a monographic book about "Salò or the 120 Days of Sodoma". Here you can find some samples of conferences and International Studies on Pasolini in which I participated.

Bari 2010 (National Convention "Le Fabbriche di Nichi): project of a web 3.0 network of direct information - "CALL-OUT NET"
"Callout Net" is a creative networking framework for "direct information" in the form of a constantly expanding social forum, tu be built starting from the tools of the Web 3.0 ("Semantic Web" + "Linked Open Data"), provided with an "highlighter" with customized parameters to map the research and the interaction with social realities operating as organizations on the ground. The target is to build a new model of "participative information", untouched by the "business media" news manipulations.
