Otto Zoo was founded by Francesca Guerrizio and Maurizio Azzali in 2008.
The gallery first focused on photography but, after the first exhibitions, began to present a more experimental program covering all contemporary artistic practices, involving both young and more established artists from the Italian and international scene.
Giulia Fumagalli (born in 1990 in Carate Brianza, Italy) is an artist and co-founder of Spazienne (2014) - a shared workspace in Garbagnate Milanese. Giulia's work harmoniously brings together the most intimate and sensitive aspects and the geometric and formal ones.
She has taken part in several collective exhibitions in Italy and in Europe. She has just inaugurated her first solo exhibition at Megazzino in Garbagnate Milanese, Italy.
Together to Go Onlus (Tog) was founded in order to create a center for hosting 106 children affected by complex neurological diseases. These children have suffered damage to their Central Nervous System from either genetic diseases, improper prenatal development or birth trauma. They have motor, cognitive, behavioral and communication disorders. Following diagnosis, they need rehabilitation, which is often the only effective cure. Tog creates a customized rehabilitation plan for each child, to help with: movement through physical therapy, communication through speech therapy, better understanding the world through cognitive therapy, and interacting with others through psychomotor training, music therapy and psychological support.
For Tog, the goal is not only to find a cure and help the children develop to their full potential, but to also create a trustful and empathetic environment that helps their families and schools.
