Our first Treasure Hunt at Cinque Terre

Our first Treasure Hunt at Cinque Terre

Our first Treasure Hunt at Cinque Terre

Our Scavenger Hunt and City Games activities keep on conquering new territories. In the last 10 years we already brought our hosts in the biggest Italian and world cities (Milan, Rome, Venice, FlorenceLucca, Catania, but also Dubai, Barcelona, Prague, Istanbul and Malta island). And now there is a new entry: we conquered Liguria with our first Treasure Hunt at Cinque Terre!

 

Discovering Cinque Terre

Scavenger Hunt in Cinque TerreCinque Terre (literally, Five Lands) are an Italian national park and a protected territory. They are five small cities on the Ligurian coast: Riomaggiore, Manarola, Corniglia, Vernazza, Monterosso. The cities can be reached by train or by boat (except for Corniglia, which doesn’t have access to the sea), but are hardly reachable by car. For our first treasure hunt at Cinque Terre we chose to use ferry boats. We brought our customers through all the cities to let them discover these charming Italian places. A travel where at every step there were creative activities, photos and video, fun challenges and hints to be found.

Each Team received some information material about Cinque Terre and a list of activities to do. Our freedom was limited only by the timetable of ferry boats, with which Teams could travel as they liked. All of them were accompanied by one of our trainers. The aim of the game? To complete all the activities and reach by time the final meeting point. But mostly to have fun and spend a nice day all together.

During the activities, each Team showed its best in creativity and fantasy. They sang, danced, composed poems, drank coffee, sunbathed, dunked their feet in water and even played a game of human chess. Therefore, it was a really unforgettable day. People who usually work in different lands here could become a Team and work all as one. It was a great team building activity!

But we had another surprise coming…

 

 

A Dinner with Murder!

Dinner with MurderWhen all the Teams completed the list of creative activities, they received the final hint that let them find a mysterious place. That was… a restaurant with a delicious fish dinner waiting for them! But the fun wasn’t over. They didn’t know there was another team building activity: a Dinner with Murder.

But where are the actors? There wasn’t any! Participants themselves had to play the characters of a murder plot! Following the indications of a director and improvising, they performed Agatha Christie’s Poirot on the Nile. Why did we choose this novel? Because of its setting: we have been traveling on the boats all day long, and the novel is set on a cruise!

After the Scavenger Hunt we already knew that our participants were creative people. But now they revealed qualities of great actors! The audience laughed and applauded their colleagues. Even our camera woman had to struggle hard in order to film the activity: her hands shook for laughing she tried to keep.

At the end of the performance, each table had to propose a solution of the detective story. All were close enough to the correct solution, but only one Team gave correctly all the details and motivations of the crime. They won the game!

A Fun Urban Game in Milan

A Fun Urban Game in Milan

Yesterday we took our guests for a fun Urban Game in Milan! They had some much fun walking around the city, looking for the hints we gave them and shooting photos. The weather was sunny and hot, and everybody enjoyed the time we spent together!

Fashion and Fun Urban Game in Milan

City Game in MilanThis time our guests worked in a big retail company, so they obviously were interested in clothes and fashion. We took them to the Italian capital of fashion to show them Italian lifestyle… and make them try the real espresso in an old style Milanese cafè!

From Duomo to La Scala theatre and then to Castello Sforzesco and Cadorna station: they saw a big part of the centre of Milan. And not just like tourists! They had to solve puzzles and perform creative tasks, making photos and videos. They also interacted with people around them, tourists and inhabitants, who helped them to find their way to some special places and to fulfill the tasks.

Creativity unleashed, they improvised themselves actors, directors, photographers and artists. The result? Fun, a day spent in pleasant company, and a city discovered in a completely new way!

The Pokémon Go Phenomenon

The Pokémon Go Phenomenon

Pokémon Go is a huge success: in just 3 weeks it arrived in more than 10 countries and had 75 millions of downloads. Sure we all know someone who’s playing, and we meet every day people who wander around the town with their eyes glued to the screen of their smartphone. Distraction on road has already caused deaths, but it doesn’t seem to scary the enthusiasts of the game, who keep growing in number. What is the cause of this Pokémon Go Phenomenon? The use of augmented reality, that soon will probably enter our everyday life!

Positive trend in tourism

Positive trend in tourism

Tourism grows… and Italy is doing well!

For the seventh year in a row, tourism is growing, with 5,3% increase in the first 4 months of 2016. World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) counted that in these months 348 millions of tourists travelled to foreign destinations, 18 millions more than in the same period of last year. And the positive trend in tourism will probably continue for the rest of the year. Previsions for the summer period (from May to August) say that other 500 millions people will leave their home for a holiday, and the year will probably end with an increase between 3,5 and 4,5%.

Google’s advice in common tongue

Google’s advice in common tongue

In the XXI century Google is one of the biggest companies in the world (if not the biggest) and it revolutionises not only in the field of technology, but especially in the approach they take towards human resources. The American point of view of business is to take care of the people, because they will determine the way your company will go. Sometimes these American tycoons might seem more concerned with business, but the reality is that none of them would’ve arrived to be important if they haven’t put close attention to the people that works for them.
