The Ludosofici formed in 2010 through a collaboration between Ilaria Rodella and Francesco Mapelli. After graduation, the pair began holding philosophy workshops aimed at children «in the belief of the need to provide little ones with the necessary tools to think independently, to look at the reality around the with different eyes and to relate to new perspectives and points of view». Working with a group of friends and collaborators, the Ludosofici have also developed a number of special projects aimed at people of all ages. They work with cultural realities, schools, museums, art galleries and design studios, according to a broad and pragmatic philosophy, drawing inspiration from the visual arts, music, 3D printers, colour and the most diverse opportunities for discussion. With Gallerie d'Italia and Unesco they organized the "Stati Generali Filosofia Bambini" and they held classes to teachers and professors. They have also written two manuals for young and adults: Tu chi sei? (2014) and Questa non è una rosa (2019), both published by Corraini.
