Released only 17 years after the author’s assassination, Pasolini’s Petrolio faced bitter controversies, which did not help its understanding. Exploring the entanglements of political and economic power of those years, the novel’s aesthetics has inspired biopolitical reflections and contemporary queer aesthetics.
