Who we are

24 years of corporate ingenuity

  • 1996 Trivioquadrivio was born (half architects, half philosophers) to return unity to the western knowledge
  • 2003 the first LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® certified trainer came back from Billund - Trivioquadrivio is elected "Partner Of The Year 2005"
  • 2005 LEGO named us “LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® partner of the year”, we are the the first in the world
  • 2008 the experience gained with lego allowed us to design and implement MAPPS®, a revolutionary organizational learning methodology that we took to Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, India, …
  • 2014 we took jugaad to Italy: the encounter with the culture of frugal innovation helped us to understand even better the value of collective ingenuity
  • 2015 we brought to italy the travelling exhibition WAVE - the 5 currents of collective ingenuity
  • 2016 to help some of the most important European multinationals to learn smart working we invented BUSINESS CHANGE BOARD®, which then became our first stand alone board game
  • 2019 HI!ACADEMY was born, the academy of ingenuity that collects the legacy of Trivioquadrivio and relaunches it on an international scale

School of ingenuity

HI!ACADEMY is the research and learning platform designed for those working in the world of consulting and management training. Its mission is to be a point of reference in Italy for professional updating, offering skills and effective tools for all organizational development needs. Its activity includes research, dissemination and training, with a monthly calendar of events and courses.

Who it is for

HI!ACADEMY directs its activities to anyone who, for various reasons, is interested in making their professionalism - and consequently supply - more solid, effective and innovative, aimed at consulting and managerial training. It is therefore aimed at freelancers and consulting companies, as well as representatives of HR departments and corporate universities. Since organizational and managerial development cannot be reduced to the business context in the strict sense of the term, HI!ACADEMY also speaks to individuals belonging to institutions of various kinds (public sector, education, non-profit, and so on).


In the world of work, "high tech" has been spoken of for decades as a lever for organizational development. We believe that high technology is worthless if not supported by "high ingenuity", i.e. the high ingenuity of people that represents the real engine of organizational development. That's why we call ourselves HI! (high ingenuity) ACADEMY and we support anyone who wants to acquire skills and tools that amplify personal ingenuity, meant as the engine for the development of the collective ingenuity of organizations.



HI!ACADEMY benefits from the contribution of some particularly ingenious people who make their experience available to expand the academy's educational offer and to strengthen its research.

UBQT is the Design and Innovation School where people learn emotional intelligence and take part in design thinking activities. Design thinking is a formalized practice that solves human needs in the most holistic way possible, taking into account all criteria of success. To know the real problem, we must keep “human needs at the centre” and add empathy, be ready to experiment, collaborate with others and develop innovative solutions. UBQT helps to develop a sense of value for design and place it at the center of the organization. Through their courses, a culture of empathy is developed: observing, listening and understanding both customers and users, colleagues and shareholders.
