Studio Azzurro was founded in Milan, Italy, in 1982 by photographer Fabio Cirifino, cinema producer Paolo Rosa and graphics designer and animator Leonardo Sangiorgi. Their first works were environmental video installations using multiple monitors. Throughout the 1980s they were engaged in a wide range of artistic activities, including stage productions and theatrical collaborations with theater companies. In 1995, they were joined by Stefano Roveda, an interactive systems specialist. Since then Studio Azzurro has produced a series of new works, based on their key concept: "interactivity."
In 1998 Studio Azzurro exhibited four interactive works at the Niitsu Art Forum, and two years ago took part in the "ICC Biennale '99."
