They started their activity in Torino, Italy, before moving in a remote, secret region of the Western Alps.

MCIAA is a single intermedia entity that acts through music, shamanic live audiovisual performance, painting and drawing, art design, photography, “cinematic poetry” films & videos, installation, writing and poetry, phonographic editions and artists' books.
