Sprofondo was born in Sarajevo, following the sad experience of the war in the former Yugoslavia. During the Peace march of 1994, some Como boys assisted by Fr. Don Renzo Scapolo decided to found an association for sending volunteers and humanitarian aid; This voluntary association is thus born on the principles of promoting peace and peoples' rights and the "bridging of bridges" between different ethnicities. Concerns about the extension of the conflict in the Balkans, and especially the war in Kosovo, concretize the idea of forming a group in Imperia, which is the first initiative in organizing a concert in July 1999. The following year, the Sprofondo Imperia Group is officially formed.
