Our History

Michele Vasta

Business Services is the name of the training company founded by Michele Vasta in 1980. Michele Vasta, the President, is a management trainer. He started teaching in 1961 and during his life has taught managers and engineers from many of the most important companies in Italy (Alitalia, Alfa Romeo, ENEL, ENI, AGIP, Banco di Roma, Pirelli, Finmeccanica, IBP, Aeroporti di Roma, etc.).
While Michele Vasta was building his training company, his four sons and his daughter were growing up and specializing in their own fields.
Giuseppe Vasta, who worked for many years at Business Services became an expert in IT infrastructures.
Filippo Vasta who worked too at Business Services, founded a company named MbyM (Management by Methods), specializing in neural network based projects for special production companies.
Angelo Vasta moved to US and become an expert of Graphic, Web Design and Communication.
In 1999, Rossella Vasta decided it might be valuable to share the Umbrian and Italian culture with some American University professors by immersing them in it. They loved the experience and encouraged the Vastas to expand the school. Later that same year, she brought the first group of American University students to Corciano. The flow of visiting students and professors has never stopped since then.
In 2000, after the wonderful experiences in the Michele Vasta International Programs and the experience of American students in Corciano, Rossella decided to found the Pieve International School as a division of the Business Services, which specialized in the management of international study programs in Italy. Her father's Villa became the setting of this wonderful new experience. In just a few years, Villa Pieve has become one of the most important international centers of culture in Umbria… and has even developed a worldwide reputation for excellence.
In 2015 Davide Vasta, the youngest son, founded the   BrainStudios Creative Campus a new branch of the original company,  which specializes in Training Programs for professionals working in the Filming and Photography Areas.
None of this could be possible without the strong effort of Benedetta La Vecchia (aka Bibi), Michele’s Wife, who devoted her life to support his husband and her sons.
