Once We Go Micro. Investigating the Transformative Potential of Italian Institutional Landlords’ Real Estate

Tutors: Matteo Robiglio, Filippo De Pieri

Italian institutional landlords played a crucial role in urban development during the last century. They contributed to build thousands of rental housing units for the emerging middle-classes. After a massive sell off during the early 2000s, institutional landlords’ units on the market are facing increasing difficulties to perform an efficient turnover. As statistics suggest an intensification in terms of disposable units, this research tries to stress the contradictory outcomes of a “micro-living” future scenario.
