Abstract

The profound socio-demographic transformations that have taken place in Europe and Italy over the last few decades have led to major changes in household composition and in what constitutes what is typically referred to as the “family.” These transformations have resulted in increasing numbers of single people, divorced couples with children, single parents, and the elderly, as well as the spread of the phenomenon of cohabitation not only among students but also among young couples and adult workers. At the same time, changes in the labour market, namely a significant rise in temporary employment and delocalization, have frequently forced people to organize their lives between more than one dwelling. In addition to these phenomena, worsening employment and economic conditions due to the lasting recession have reduced housing affordability and set constraints on access to housing, even for middle-income groups. Altogether, these phenomena have challenged the meaning of “home” as inherited from the Modern Movement, and the housing programs implemented under the welfare states of many countries during the twentieth century, imposing the need for a thorough revision of both the understanding of the idea of family and the concept of residence (that is slowly taking over that of home
