Maria Callas and Pier Paolo Pasolini

A dear friend sent me the picture of Maria Callas and Pier Paolo Pasolini, below. Pasolini enjoyed a playful, platonic relationship throughout the filming of Medea. But it wasn’t to stay that way for long. Pasolini said that apart from his mother, Maria Callas, was the only woman he ever loved. The close-up kiss above, the only one of its kind, sent the magazines and newspapers wild, announcing their imminent engagement. There was, of course, no truth in that.
