Izmo born in 2006 in Turin and is involved in participatory processes, local development, architecture, design and new media.
The name comes dall'assonanza with the isthmus, a thin line of land that joins the two territories: our area of research is in fact the territory, a place of relationships between individuals and spaces, and our mission is to unite the territories between them , the people with the land and with each other through urban redevelopment and installations; organization of seminars, meetings and workshops; development of collaborative Web platforms. In all cases, the activities and actions of Izmo come from reading and from listening to the places and people affected by the interventions.
