Pier Paolo Pasolini – We are tired of being serious youth / Siamo stanchi di diventare giovani seri

Renato Guttuso, The beach, 1956

We are tired of being serious youth,
as well as being necessarily happy, criminal, or psychotic.
We want to laugh, be
guiltless, wait for something in this life;
we want to ask, we want to not know.
We still want to be
able to dream.

Siamo stanchi di diventare giovani seri,
o contenti per forza, o criminali, o nevrotici:
vogliamo ridere, essere
innocenti, aspettare qualcosa dalla vita,
chiedere, ignorare.
Non vogliamo essere
subito già così senza sogni.
