The Ask Office in Pisa, Italy is not a joke.
Employees (that come from Italy, France, Lithuania and Hungary) are working in a 14th century Tuscan palace in Pisa.
Director of Pisa Office Antonio Gulli explains the choice of Pisa:
“Pisa has one of the most prestigious Engineering and Computer Science Universities in Europe. Therefore, Ask has access to much talent for both our local and remote offices. In addition, Pisa is located in Tuscany, a region loved by many people for the food, the wine, and the quality of life. Pisa is connected with New York JFK by a 7-hour direct flight and the airport is 20 minutes walking distance from the office.”
Pisa’s Office is former Palace Gambacorti, on Corso Italia. It was built in the 14th century and was the home of the Gambacortis, Pisa’s most powerful family. Henry VII stayed in the palace, as did Charles IV of Luxembourg.
“The new office is GORGEOUS even for Italian standards”
