About us

Love Difference


Because cultural differences are a value.
Because through art it is possible to contribute to a responsible transformation of society.
Because we activate artistic projects that promote the encounter and the dialogue among the different Mediterranean countries.

"Love Difference is an Artistic Movement for an InterMediterranean Politic, to bring love to where tragic conflict arises between peoples and cultures."
Michelangelo Pistoletto

Love Difference is a non-profit association established in June 2002 by Cittadellarte - Fondazione Pistoletto together with international institutions, cultural centres, researchers, curators and artists. It presently counts 650 members.

The objective of the Love Difference association is to develop creative projects that stimulate dialogue between people from different cultural, political and religious backgrounds, and to construct a solid network between those who wish to meet and resolve social issues through art and creativity.
