This park commemorates the place where Italian filmmaker, writer, and intellectual Pier Paolo Pasolini was murdered on November 2, 1975, in circumstances not entirely clear. In 2005 the Municipality of Rome turned it into a Literary Park,  with a stele in memory of the tragic event, surrounded by quotes from Pasolini’s poetry.

The park is managed by the Italian Bird Protection League (LIPU), so it has become a spot frequently visited by Pasolini’s fans and birdwatchers alike. 

Know Before You Go

The park is open every day from 9 a.m. to sunset, with direct access from Via dell'Idroscalo. Easily reachable on public transportation from Rome Termini or Piramide Station.
