Ars et Inventio was founded by Ernesto Ciorra who was for it, from 2003 until mid-2014, soul, inspiration and guidance.
His ambitious project, began with two colleagues, has grown to carve out an important niche in consulting, taking it to be the innovation division of a Group (Bip), which employs more than 900 professionals in the world. Ernesto, before others, understood the importance of innovation as a structured process and engine for real change, cultural prior than organizational.
