ROME (AP) — Oscar winner Tilda Swinton is a big fan of the city of Rome. “Rome never ends,” the Scottish actress said in the Italian capital on Thursday.

“In a certain way, you can even say it never started,” said the 60-year-old about the metropolis. On the streets you can see all the historical eras, which is “timeless”.

Together with French curator and fashion historian Olivier Cellard, Swinton presented an art project about Italian director and poet Pier Paolo Pasolini (“Mamma Roma” / 1962). Historical film costumes are reinterpreted from Pasolini’s works in the performance “Emboding Pasolini”. The world premiere of both of their works will be celebrated on Friday (25 June) in the halls of the Matteo Cultural Center.

Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi said on Thursday that cinema and fashion are two things that are closely related to Rome. Pasolini will be 100 years old in the coming year. The Italian artist was murdered in 1975 in Ostia, not far from Rome.
