Cittadellarte aims to inspire people towards responsible change in society through ideas and creative projects.

Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto was founded in 1998 as the physical embodiment of the Progetto Arte Manifesto (1994) with which the artist Michelangelo Pistoletto proposed a new role for the artist: the role of creating an interaction between all the diverse spheres of human activity that form the society.

Cittadellarte is a huge laboratory where creativity acts as the crossing point between the diverse cultural, economical and productive sectors. It is a massive generator of energy, and a place for rethinking things, for sharing views, for studying and for doing research.

The name "Cittadellarte" incorporates two meanings - that of a citadel, namely a protected and defended area where artistic projects can be nurtured and developed, and that of a city, which suggests openness and complex interrelations with the world.

The activities of Cittadellarte are based on a vision of "creative involvement", where art interacts directly with all dimensions of the social system - from economics to politics, from science to production, from education to behaviour - in order to achieve a responsible transformation in human civilisation.
