Coliving has taken off across Europe against a backdrop of rising rent, energy costs and urban loneliness. Milan, a city that has historically seen the highest rental rates, has been a little slower on the uptake than the likes of London and Lisbon, but the tide is changing. As well as a boom in shared apartments, purpose-built coliving spaces like Bligny28 and Eco-living Milan have sprung up across the city in the past couple of years. For those looking to settle down temporarily in Milan – be it two weeks or two months – these spaces offer affordable, no-commitment contracts and a readymade group of friends. With so many to choose from, we’ve scoured the internet for five of the most stylish coliving spaces in Milan.
