Gustavo Pietropolli Charmet, Paola Gaggiotti and Cristina Pancini, webinar

nctm e l’arte resumes the programme of meetings dedicated to rights seen through the eyes of artists and specialists

The programme will restart with an in-depth examination of the theme of healthcare and the right to individual and public health. The topic of the meeting, which was already scheduled for the first months of 2020, and subsequently suspended due to the health crisis, proves to be today more than ever compelling and of current relevance.

The meeting will be dedicated to health, defined more than seventy years ago by the WHO as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease”; and to a notion of care that goes beyond medical protocols, meant as active attitude and relational commitment stemming from an idea of mutual responsibility and from the awareness of interdependence between people and the environment in all its components.

This first meeting will bring together three persons sharing an intense involvement in care dynamics and environments: Gustavo Pietropolli Charmet, psychotherapist and adolescent psychiatrist, and the artists Paola Gaggiotti and Cristina Pancini.

Paola Gaggiotti has been for years an activator of artistic projects within the Department of Oncological Pediatrics of the Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori in Milan in which she has involved several other figures, including Cristina Pancini, who has been carrying out for years sensitive projects related to people going through phases of fragility. This cooperation at the Istituto dei Tumori inspired the Condominy project, which concerns the isolation of sick children and, by extension, the need and power of being together.
Condominy has also become a recently published book.
