A permanent seat for the activities related to the Third Paradise thanks to the “Comitato Biellesi per il Terzo Paradiso”
On the occasion of Arte al Centro 2015, the most recent of the former factory spaces regenerated by Cittadellarte along the banks of the river Cervo opens to the public, thanks to the inspiration and the support of the “Comitato Biellesi per il Terzo Paradiso”.
The committee, founded by Claudio Botto Poala, Paolo Botto Poala, Serafino Garella, Angelo Pavia and Rodolfo Rosso (as its president), was born in December 2013 with the aim of promoting the establishment of a permanent site for the activities related to the Third Paradise and for the development of a knowledge about Michelangelo Pistoletto and his thought, further embedding them in the Biellese territory, intervening on the building part of the former Trombetta wool mill in via Cernaia 46.
The Third Paradise, symbol at the centre of countless projects around the world, from India to Cuba, from Finland to New Zealand, finds its official collocation in Biella, thanks to the commitment of the Committee, in a place intended to become the centre of the international network of activities aimed at a sustainable transformation of society.
The Biellesi per il Terzo Paradiso committee personally appreciates the inspiration carried by Pistoletto’s symbol: a group of private citizens gathers and pledges their own resources for the support of the huge twenty-year work of regeneration along the banks of the river Cervo on one side, and, on the other, for the creation of the first permanent public space dedicated to the Third Paradise, a place of secular meditation favouring the reflection on the need to rethink our relationship with the planet Earth, moving from the present destructive imbalance to a new phase in the history of humanity able to recreate a balance between nature and
artifice through each individual’s responsible commitment.
