Technology and Creativity, the combination to unlock an amazing future

  • Our story

    When vision meets destiny

    "We need to be more conscious about how we’re designing the future." For years, Both founders of Pi School, Marco Trombetti and Jamshid Alamuti had this common idea in their head. They lived parallel lives and they both searched relentlessly for a new model of education: miles away from each other, they both yearned to create Education 2.0. While Marco started years ago with designing Pi Campus, the European version of Silicon Valley in Rome, and turned Villas into startup space, creating the right environment to facilitate connections between people and ideas, Jamshid was constantly experimenting in his Learning Lab, trying out different techniques, methodologies, applying philosophies from all over the world and looking for the approach that would maximize the learning experience and its impact on society.
  • Connecting two great pillars of society was the key

    The next obvious step for Marco and Jamshid was to bring Technology and Creativity together. Creativity sparks our desire to evolve as a human race and technology affects the way we connect and relate to each other. The two disciplines were so close and yet their natural bond had been broken by men in their race to the future. Worlds that desperately needed each other weren’t able to speak the same language. But in September 2016, it all came together. Jamshid was the host of the Art Directors Club Europe in Barcelona, and Marco happened to be the last speaker of the day who had to go through Jamshid’s rather unconventional Q&A. Later that same night, the two got to talking and soon discovered they shared the same vision and had been waiting to meet each other to make it all come true.
  • Every great thing needs time to ripen

    After a year fueled by excitement, Pi School has finally celebrated its grand opening (take a look at the Open Day Video). During the past year, a new Villa was added to Pi Campus Start-up community and, while designers were working to create the best learning environment for the students, Jamshid and Marco introduced their innovative approach to academia to some of the greatest minds in the world. Together they debated it, challenged it, put its content to the test, and then fine-tuned it. They are extremely proud of the result! Since September 15th, PI’s schools offer a set of various disciplines within the school such as the School of Artificial Intelligence and the School of Creative Entrepreneurship. They have now started a journey towards one common goal: transforming the world into an amazing place, a place of hope, wonder and happiness. Not for us, but for those who come next. Our Children, the talents of the future.
  • Our approach

    Understanding the new dynamics of the world

    Old-school organizations believe that it is sufficient to arm their management team and their leaders with a fixed set of skills. They believe in a recipe for success, a recipe set in stone that applies to all industries and fields. At Pi School, we see how dynamic the new marketplace is becoming, we see how priorities are evolving to include environmental needs, growing trends and new ethics. They’re evolving to make room for the future and, more importantly, for the future talents. To us, pairing entrepreneurship with creativity, design and technology makes for the most flexible and forward-thinking type of learning, learning for real doers.

The Location

In all circumstances, we follow the motto “Do and Learn and Learn by Doing”. We don’t believe in vertical learning, Instead, we believe in creating a safe haven for innovators, startuppers, thinkers and students to interact. Our campus provides the best environment for the exchange of knowledge and ideas. There are 160 start-uppers working on developing the future on our grounds and the spirit of innovation is all around you. Get inspired from unique individuals and their real life experience: they are entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, engineers, tech designers and creatives and they are ready to share their stories with you, ready to listen to yours and give you their best and most honest counseling and mentorship.

The perfect space to fall in love with the future

Inspiration is not a product you can receive. It happens when you connect to something, when you admire it and when you fall in love with it. We have created the perfect space for you to fall in love with the future.
Come and see for yourself!

Who is Pi School for

Pi School is for people interested in coming together to exchange, expand their horizons and learn from one another in order to build an amazing future: highly skilled engineers, brilliant creative minds, young global talents, tech-savvy, innovators, experienced senior leaders and people who believe their ideas have the power to change the world. We don’t only work on improving what you are good at, we work with you on what you lack to make you ready to meet the challenges of tomorrow with incredible success.

    William di Luigi

    School of AI
    William is fascinated by technology since an early age. He started getting interested in Computer Science because the idea of telling a machine what to do sounded so enticing, that he taught himself the basics of programming. Back in high school, William discovered the Informatics Olympiads, a programming competition that focuses on efficient algorithms and data structures. He decided he wanted to win a medal in this competition, so he trained for over a year to accomplish this goal, arrived to the Italian finals and won a gold medal. This achievement lead him to an internship at IBM. William moved to a new city when he started his university studies. It was a life changing experience and, after 3 years of BSc, he is now pursuing his MSc in Computer Science and Engineering. Why Pi School? William always liked algorithms but he never considered the idea of teaching a machine. Today, with machine learning, we can compute our output by merely providing a machine with training data, thus allowing us to solve problems too hard to tackle by explicitly writing the algorithm logic. In the present time, it's really important for a developer to have a grasp of machine learning, that's why William decided to apply to Pi School.

    Background in Cognitive Science and Software Engineering. Deliberating between Machine Learning and Cognitive Science, at the time he decided to go with the latter, because he reasoned that before developing artificial intelligence models it is useful to have an understanding of how cognition comes about in natural agents. He got acquainted with different approaches to the study of the brain, from cellular models and neuroanatomy to philosophical theories of mind, and he came to fully appreciate the power of mathematical language in describing computational principles of cognition. Rimvydas co-founded a productivity startup, led him to remain in Software Engineering for the few following years. In the most recent position he was responsible for all software aspects of an infrastructure inspection company using UAVs, which involved everything from implementing low level interfaces with hardware, to making modifications to the autopilot code, and processing of acquired imagery.
