The initiative, conceived before the outburst of the pandemic, wants to contribute to a significant growth in the activities linked to incoming tourism, which would offer new job and investment opportunities in the area, most importantly to young people. The project has been launched by Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Biella, Gruppo Sella and Gruppo Zegna, with the support of Cittadellarte.
The cycle of conversations “Artists, media and markets: new trajectories in Italy”, curated by Flash Art for Bologna’s fair, will include the talk “The art of care”, programmed for 24th January. Speakers of the event will be Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paolo Naldini (director of Cittadellarte) and Flavio Ronzi (general secretary of the Italian Red Cross).

17/09/2020Redazione, 17/09/2020The online exhibition – a proposal by UJ Arts & Culture in Johannesburg – has involved 17 artists who have interrogated and explored through their works possible processes leading global civilization to a new level of responsibility.

02/09/2020Face to face with Michelangelo Pistoletto: a special episode of our feature “The art of balance / Pandemopraxy”Luca Deias, 02/09/2020In a new interview, the Biellese artist has commented on the success of the initiative – which has so far received 50 contributions – launched by our Journal and conceived by Cittadellarte’s director Paolo Naldini. Michelangelo Pistoletto stresses the importance of the project: “It’s necessary,” he claims,“that each person coming into contact with others by expressing their thought through this initiative manages to find, in this multiplicity, answers producing something effective, because people can’t usually fulfil their wishes by themselves”.

This last key word, which he is proposing, recalls a network of locality by expressing a vision addressed to building connections between ecologies and economies. “The paradigm of tricircularity,” – he claims, – “implies the concept of circularity, but it intends and extends it in a horizontal and polycentric, or rather acentric, perspective”.
