Cittadellarte – Pistoletto Foundation

Was established in 1998 as the concrete implementation of the Manifesto Progetto Arte through which Michelangelo Pistoletto proposes a new role for the artist, as activator of dynamics, projects and creative ideas to stimulate responsible change in the various areas of society. Cittadellarte is a new form of artistic and cultural institution that places art in direct interaction with the various sectors of society. It is a place for the convergence of creative ideas and projects that combine creativity and enterprise, education and production, ecology and architecture, politics and spirituality. An organism aimed at producing civilization, activating a responsible social transformation necessary and urgent at a local and global level.

The fundamental theme of Cittadellarte’s activities is the relationship between the freedom of art and the ethics of social responsibility. Cittadellarte is indeed structured into thematic offices, operation centers called Uffizi, each dedicated to developing research experimental practices with the prospect of relating artistic creativity with the shared construction of the “common good”.
