A place of science, devoted to Breath
Oxy.gen offers initiatives focused on research, education and the dissemination of knowledge, for the purpose of raising awareness among young people and adults, so as to guide them towards new conceptions of health, quality of life and personal well-being, with an ever greater concentration on the sphere of communication, information and how we relate to one another, with an emphasis on the topic of Breath—both human Breathing and the Breath of planet Earth.
Zambon Open Education
Zambon Open Education was established in 2008, with a focus on health communication and the aim of promoting a modern culture of well-being and quality of life, based on the principles of knowledge, awareness and being well-informed.
Parco Nord Milano
Spread over 800 hectares, in the midst of a highly urbanised metropolitan setting, this is Milan’s largest green space, abounding in woods and forests, meadows, lakes, canals and agricultural areas. Since the 1980s, its biodiversity has been increasing thanks to urban forestation, the safeguarding of its natural ecosystems, a growing awareness of its environmental resources and an appreciation for its scenic value.
Without research and study, there can be no dissemination of knowledge
Oxy.gen is a futuristic construction shaped like an air bubble, built on a artificial lake at the heart of the Parco Nord Science Gardens. It came into being in 2014, fruit of an idea conceived by Zambon, with the collaboration of Parco Nord Milano, the Municipality of Bresso and the Region of Lombardy. It was designed by architect Michele De Lucchi as a space to be experienced and explored, where body and mind interact with the fascinating universe of Breath.
