A non-profit organization of Christian inspiration, every year Fondazione Sacra Famiglia provides more than 360,000 health and sociomedical services and assists 12,000 people in more than 60 reception and rehabilitation units in Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria. "For Fondazione Sacra Famiglia, a fundamental step in the process of taking care of its guests, children, adults, elderly and disabled people, is the one concerning activities aimed at improving the quality of life, encouraging the acquisition of skills, increasing competence and self-esteem", explain the organization. Among the various activities promoted, there are also "Arteticamente" laboratories, where a team of 20 professionals, including instructors, occupational therapists and educators, defines personalized paths through the use of psycho-educational techniques in different activities: pottery, carpentry, creative garden, costume jewelry, production of solidarity favors and greeting cards, recycling and creative sewing.

The exhibition promoted by Sacra Famiglia at the Pinacoteca di Brera is curated by Alessandro Guerriero and Alessandra Zucchi with the contribution of Tam Tam, an association born from an idea of Alessandro Guerriero, Alessandro Mendini, Riccardo Dalisi and Giacomo Ghidelli and dedicated to fragile people and marginal areas. Among the supporters, also Fondazione Mediolanum Onlus and Fondazione Vittorio Polli ed Anna Maria Stoppani MMIX. And the setting up could only be thematic, with a technical partner such as Rattiflora, a family-owned company that has been working for almost eighty years in the field of floral and garden design.
