Whether solo or alongside his group Zero Plastica, Nio has been supporting and contributing to the cause of many NGOs and associations, including organizing benefit projects and events. Here's a brief list of some of them:
Collaboration with Music For Peace (2001-Present): Nio has been doing dj-sets and concerts with Zero Plastica to collect food, medicines and clothes for victims of the war in Palestine, Afghanistan, Saharawi, Iraq, Sudan, Sri Lanka, Alegeria and victims of tsunami in the Indian Ocean (2004) and of the earthquake in Abruzzo, Italy (2009).
During 2010 Football World Cup in South Africa, Zero Plastica joined "Officially Offside" a compilation that was put together to show solidarity with the Khulumani Support Group legal action against several multi-national corporations who supplied the apartheid regime with the military equipment it used to suppress the majority of South Africa’s people.
In 2009 Nio made a compilation called "Narcisisti & Ossessivi - Musica Nera della Liguria" (Obessive & Narcysistic - Black Music from Liguria) in which he collected 20 tracks of rap, reggae, R&B, dubstep, soul and folk artists, using the music to explain the complexity of the local state of mind and mental issues. All the money gained was given to Don Andrea Gallo's Community of San Benedetto al Porto, home for homeless and last people in Genova.
