Discover Our Values
The Lisciani group has studied the way children learn for more than forty years.
A commitment that can be seen from the various initiatives found in the “Lisciani Development and Research Centre”, which was born out of the objective to spread and increase the quality of educational material not only in school but also in all the other products in our catalogue.
To offer content with a high added value is the cornerstone of the Lisciani Group’s activity.
We invent and plan stories, educational texts and teaching methodologies that enrich the educational experience of all children.
We pay great attention to the editing and publishing of not only the production of our books and recreational-educational materials, but also our animated series and games.
We are leaders in learning through our “Lischool” (i.e. Lisciani digital school) projects and “Hi-Tech for children”, a group of products, which guide the youngest of children in the discovery of new digital technologies in a safe and fun way.
A world of products and digital services where it is possible to play and learn with Hi-Tech for children.
“Those who try to distinguish between play and education probably do not realise that education must be fun and fun must be educational.”
This is how the great American sociologist, Marshall McLuhan summed up one of the values on which we base all our activities. Learning through play, or learning whilst having fun.
Research and studies into both pedagogical and didactic fields has shown that improving a child’s performance in its formative years is one of the prerequisites to ensure that the child has a good quality of life in the future.
We maintain that the cognitive potential of every child must be enhanced to the full because it is a child’s most precious asset.
All Lisciani products easily meet the desired and explicit objectives.
Through the creation of tried and tested educational pathways, as well as the latest accredited theories we guarantee the acquisition of development skills for learning.
A learning guarantee that for us is the first guarantee of quality.
Our products come with the original Table of Educational Values, a precious guide for parents and teachers.
Highlights the areas of experience and personality development of the child, analytically describing the educational potential of each game

Always at the forefront of the world of innovation and educational experimentation, the Lisciani group is the leader in the new digital and touch screen technology.

The Lisciani group is present in the sector of educational games, with a rich range of products for all ages: electronic games from early years to pre-school, from children’s science games to creative activities, board games for the whole family right through to the original two sided puzzles.
Consistent with its philosophy, the Lisciani group is active in the world of animation, with the production of three cartoon series of Carotina Super Bip®, the character that has had the greatest success amongst pre-school products.
The various episodes and story lines, realised for the amusement and entertainment of children do not neglect didactic-educational themes and are designed to encourage learning.
The Lisciani brand name is known and respected by both parents and teachers. Lisciani is the creator of two original characters who have, over time, gained a growing success, that is Carotina, which targets pre-schoolers, and I’m a Genius, for school age children. Loved by children, they have become real icons of effective and enjoyable learning.
Founded by Giuseppe Lisciani in the late eighties, the Lisciani group has its roots in the Abruzzo region, in the town of Teramo, where research, design, planning, manufacture and logistics are still carried out today.
Giuseppe Lisciani, educationalist and holder of a medal for educational merit from the President of the Italian Republic, also set up the” Lisciani Centre for Training and Research.”
The centre collects contributions from educationalists and pedagogues in order to make learning more fun and more effective.
Giuseppe Lisciani was born in Notaresco on November 2nd, 1940. After his degree in Pedagogy at the University of l'Aquila he moved onto teaching history, philosophy, pedagogy and psychology in secondary schools. He was also a researcher and assistant to the chair of education science professor Mauro Laeng at the University of La Sapienza in Rome.
At the beginning of the seventies, he founded the publishing house EIT and began to publish and direct the series of books on pedagogy and education entitled « Educazione Nuova » (‘New Education’).
In 1975, he received the medal for educational merit from the President of the Italian Republic.
At the beginning of the eighties, he became the editor of the Giunti Group for nursery and primary schools, also taking on the position of editor of the fortnightly magazine “La vita Scolastica” (‘School Life’) for approximately ten years.
In 1989, he started the family company Lisciani Games, which has now become the Lisciani Group of which he is the chair of the board of directors. He is the creator of the children’s character Carotina Super Bip and designer of the cartoon of the same name.
In our Teramo head office, concepts, planning and the development of all the items in the catalogue are carried out, not to mention the major part of the manufacturing thanks to the availability of leading edge technology.
Lisciani products conform to the most stringent legislation of child safety and are considered to be the “Best Educational” products, not just because of our company's enormous experience in the educational field, but also for our care in the choice and use of materials and in the company’s processes.
Our Italian production, our focus on the client, and an elevated sense of environmental responsibility and safety issues guarantee the highest level of control along the entire production and represent an important factor in the loyalty of our clients.
