What will be your action for change?
What will be your action for the Rebirth-day 2016?
21 December 2016: Worldwide Day of Change to celebrate the Rebirth.
Join the worldwide day of change with your action.


Think of a collective action to celebrate the Rebirth-day.
We can all participate, with personal or group initiatives featuring proposals, actions and activities consistent with the process of responsible social change.
The Rebirth-day project is low-impact, sustainable and sensitive to environmental issues; it promotes a development model appropriate to a practice of containment and it uses the free collaboration of individuals and communities throughout the world.
Participation in the Rebirth-day represents a personal commitment to the process of change.
We have the extraordinary opportunity to joyfully and eagerly create our future destiny together: we can participate, with whatever form of expression (performance, music, flash-mob, installations, meetings, food events…) in creating a great common artwork.

"On the occasion of the 2016 Rebirth-day, I suggest we should adopt a word on which to develop an understanding aiming at containing as much as possible the huge social dysfunction pervading the whole world.
The word I propose is: respect."
Michelangelo Pistoletto

How to participate:

Propose actions, activities and interventions that celebrate the change, the renovation, more sustainable social relations and different relations between human beings and nature Inspired by rebirth—starting, for instance, from the sign/symbol of the Third Paradise, which can be presented in different forms in different languages and materials or take inspiration from events realized in 2012, 2013, 2014 and in 2015.

Dance della Rinascita
Organized by: Liceo Artistico Statale Medardo Rosso di Lecco, Franco Lozza
Where: IT / Italy / Province of Lecco
When: 2012-12-21
500 students of LASMR with their teachers have created a performance inspired by the "Dance" by Henry Matisse and by the "Third Paradise".

From the Lectio Magistralis by Michelangelo Pistoletto for the students of the Liceo Artsitico Statale "M.Rosso" held on October 17, to the morning of December 21 , 2012, when 500 students of LASMR with their teachers, have created in Lecco, in Piazza XX Settembre, a performance inspired by the "Dance" by Henry Matisse and by the "Third Paradise", thus responding to the invitation received from Michelangelo Pistoletto to participate in the 1st Rebirth-day.
The action planned by students gave birth to a peaceful invasion of the city center, with the involvement of passers-by with the "gift" of the hugs.
The performance, inspired by Matisse 's masterpiece (for its affinity to the Rebirth-day: universality / harmony / circularity ), ends with a reference to the fresco of "Buon Governo" by A. Lorenzetti , generating during its course the symbol of infinity and that of the "Third Paradise". After the performance the students and teachers walked by Via Cavour to reach the City Hall to meet the Mayor Virginio Brivio.
