As a part of the AHRC-funded network Roman Modernities, and as an ideal complement to the SIS interim conference 2014, a conversation on the legacies of Pasolini and Fellini, the image of Rome, and the role of the intellectual in contemporary Italy. To paraphrase a recent book by Pierpaolo Antonello, can we forget Fellini and Pasolini? How does their Rome-related imaginary still haunt us? And what does their legacy still tell us about Italy and about the image of Italy abroad?
