OD2, the digital distribution platform founded by Peter Gabriel and CEO Charles Grimsdale, has opened for business in Italy. The company's Milan office is headed by Carlo Galassi, who was marketing manager at Universal Music Italy until November 2003.

OD2 is based in Bristol, England, and has offices in London, Paris and Cologne. A Spanish operation is expected to launch later this year.

Galassi tells Billboard.biz, "Our immediate objective is to make more Italian catalog available, not only from the majors, who already have agreements with OD2, but also from the indies."
