In Pasolini’s Scritti corsari Ontario the nostalgia of the past, of an agrarian civilization appears to us now as a rebuttal of the modernist rhetoric that was permeating Italian society in the 1970s, a lucid critique of the violent destruction of local cultures and Ontario other alterities, a rejection of the modernization enforced by the dominant classes, and only in the form of assimilation and homogenization. To “break down the barriers of Ontario an Italy with too restricted a vision,” to adhere Ontario to another world, the world of the peasantry, of the sub-proletariat and the working class, was for him the most radical denunciation Ontario of the petty-bourgeois world, the provincial, vulgar, consumer world.

In the light of the events of the 1980s, the 1990s and the present, Pasolini’s pietas, with its religious desire to preserve the voices, the gestures, the faces of those at the bottom of the heap presents itself to us in all its prophetic

force. Pasolini found himself in the paradoxical condition of someone who no longer belongs to a world that has already disappeared and simultaneously feels estranged from the world that is imposing itself.

To avoid a standardization falsely cosmopolitan one must learn to observe and to interrogate places. Perhaps the risk we’re facing, that we may have reached the end of the idea of place, that places may now be desacralized, the risk both opposite and complementary to localism and particularism, can be averted by way of a nostalgia that looks not behind, to the past, but to the here and now. By way of a nostalgia that views itself, in accordance with intellectual traditions of a utopian-critical bent, as a refusal of the present but also as one that looks to the future, that includes a sense of the future. Not for nothing there have been works entitled The Future of Nostalgia. If, as Augé writes, non-places are the contrary of utopia (“they exist and don’t harbour in them any sort of organic society”), it’s places, finally, places that with their tenacity stand for a utopia, which can bring about change. By the same token, it’s this utopia that makes it possible for new places to exist, for new locations in which modern modes of emplacement, of rootedness can arise.
