Michelangelo Pistoletto began his work as an artist in the ‘50s. In 2003, Pistoletto wrote the manifesto of The Third Paradise [Il Terzo Paradiso] and drew its iconic symbol, a reconfiguration of the mathematical sign for infinity, in the sand. Between the two contiguous circles, which signify the two opposite poles of nature and artifice, he inserted a third, central circle to represent the generative womb of a new humanity, an ideal that subsumes the polarities of nature and artifice and negates their destructive conflict in society today.
