Cittadellarte invites its digital users and readers to reflect on the life awaiting us in the post-pandemic world. Will or won’t we change? And if we will, how? What can we concretely do to head towards a balance of sustainable prosperity? Starting from these questions inspired by the song by Subsonica dedicated to the Third Paradise, we’ll wait for your answers to give a collective boost to our project of rebirth and responsible social transformation. Michelangelo Pistoletto and Paolo Naldini introduce the initiative through a video message and a docufilm: here are the recordings.
“How you will live? How you will learn? How will you communicate? How will you express yourself? How will you do everything you do?”. Around these questions inspired by Subsonica’s song dedicated to the Third Paradise, Cittadellarte launches the initiative “The art of balance”. Paolo Naldini proposes his own docu-film reflecting on the impact Covid-19 will have on our society, also in the next stages of this emergency and once it will be over. The director of Cittadellarte offers a series of analysis and ideas for the rebirth – between trinamic balance, demopraxy and the research, right and joy of each individual in their own community – starting with a local and individual dimension to the global collective. Here is how to go from pandemic… to pandemopraxy.
