The artivator – cultural project manager and coordinator of the ambassadors of Cittadellarte’s project Rebirth/Third Paradise is the 32nd guest of the initiative “The Art of Balance / Pandemopraxy”. Francesco Saverio Teruzzi – a member of Fondazione Pistoletto’s communication team and Accademia Unidee’s orientation team – analyses the Coronavirus from the perspective of cause-effect relationship, reflecting on the impact the pandemic has had in global society and on how it has transformed our habits. Now, to restart, we don’t need a revolution but a change: “Today,” he claimed, “we don’t have the capitalism vs communism paradigm anymore, but the duopoly finance-consumerism, which – with the exception of a few areas still resisting the invasion – have practically won across the board. We therefore need a change, a slow and persistent movement able to impose different assumptions, different morals, a different civic sense on society”. Our guest concludes by illustrating possible practices of change he will personally apply.
The Rebirth/Third Paradise ambassador and anthropologist (as well as curator and film director) is the 27th guest of “The Art of Balance / Pandemopraxy”, launched by Cittadellarte. Giorgio de Finis reflects on the impact the pandemic has had on social relations, and in particular on the change cities all over the world have gone through as a consequence of the spreading of Covid-19. “It’s undeniable,” he said, “that the virus has breached through the ‘social body’, causing, to different degrees but globally, a withdrawal in ourselves, a raising of shields, a diffidence that has been somehow justified as a slowing down, a taking time to reassess priorities, choose and ponder”.
