– Housing Legacy. Investigating the transformative potential of Italian institutional landlords’ real estate.
– 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. This study aims to highlight the crucial phases of this process, from its rise to its current critical condition. 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.
