WE ARE DREAMERS WHO CREATE PROJECTS WITH ART AND CULTURE.
We are a group of people strongly motivated to work in the social sector and together lovers of Culture and Art.
Why not combine these peculiarities and thus give life to a path that carries out social and humanitarian support interventions while simultaneously promoting Culture and Art? This is the spirit with which we intend to continue to operate.
It all began, almost by chance, in 2017 when Manuela Codazzi got the idea of trying to "use" art to support those who need it most. It was decided to define the project "ArtAndCharity".
The first art exhibition to be organized at the Madri Pie Residence in Noli (Sv) comes to life, a hotel residence overlooking the Ligurian sea and in which about ten artists participated with great enthusiasm.
In 2018, again in Noli, the event was repeated.
After the first wonderful experiences and thanks to a fortuitous meeting with Cristian Katou, the idea of setting up an association that uses art for charity takes shape.
This is how the “ InTogo ” Association was born.
Initially the humanitarian projects were intended to carry out various interventions on the Togolese territory, this single objective was identified thanks also to our former president Cristian Katou , a young Togolese resident in the province of Varese (the activities carried out can be viewed in the "News" section of the site ).
Subsequently, we considered it necessary to support other realities besides Togo and for this reason the very name of the "InTogo" Association appeared reductive and no longer fully representative of the aims of the association itself which, together with the social/humanitarian interventions, integrated the Statute with the aim of promoting Culture and Art always supporting initiatives in support of specific social/humanitarian projects identified from time to time by the Board of Directors.
From that moment ARTandCHARITY ODV was born, which sees today as President Giovanni Tommasi .
We strongly believe in the value of Culture as a necessary and indispensable nourishment for the growth and improvement of all of us, but this is not enough to be able to act and implement the many projects we are perfecting.
This is why we ask for everyone's help so that even a small donation can be a drop that feeds that source that allows us to do big and small things.
We are available and happy to collaborate with other Associations, Organizations or Groups that intend to share and support our projects, always in compliance with the statutory provisions.

LET'S GET THE NUMBERS

We're used to letting the numbers speak because it's the numbers that say better than any word how much the association is doing.
