Abstract

With the crisis of the welfare, in Italy social housing is now the only means of providing response to housing demand and rebuilding housing stock underused or abandoned. Italy has currently a very interesting legal framework with respect to the social housing subject, which may support the testing of new forms of public-private partnerships, with the dual goal to answer to the growing demand for social housing and to enhance the existing underexploited building stock. These are projects falling under the ethical finance scope and including the sustainable offer for housing and related services aimed at those who cannot meet their housing needs in the standard market. The social housing project is realized with the creation of a real estate fund in which the public (local authority, the Municipality) gives properties or disused or retrained areas, while private investors implement the construction project; make the start-up of the community; create a range of services to the scale of the construction sector and the neighborhood; activate an innovative accompanying process to housing and management of social housing building stock. This public-private collaboration allows both to meet the growing need for moderate fee housing by the population and to redevelop buildings and urban areas subject to degradation; as well as to increase the offer of services to the population. This study shows: - two cases of urban regeneration in Milan: Figino Borgo Sostenibile and Cenni di Cambiamento; - two cases of reuse of two existing buildings in Turin and Milan, both located in neighborhoods affected by processes of demographic change and housing pressure. “Vivo al Venti” in Turin is the redevelopment of a historical building of approximately 5,500 sqm designed by Filippo Juvarra. "ViaPadova36" Milan is the renovation of an inhabited old building; - a case of widespread regeneration in Milan, presenting innovative features with respect to supply and demand for housing. In all cases, housing and services are designed, dimensioned and assigned with the aim to build a community of people based on the principles of relationship and social integration.
