Coliving: a space to foster social inclusion

In the world, the coworking, cohousing and coliving realities in which people work, live, or work and live in communities are increasing in number and size, sharing space, time and relationships.

In spite of this, if you search on the internet the definition of coliving it is not easy to find a clear and simple answer .. but for us one thing is certain: the most important aspect of a coliving is the community and the capability of the host to create connections between travelers and local people. 

Coliving in this sense is a real mission for us.

Since 2012 we have been hosting people from all over the world in Matera to create exchange opportunities with the inhabitants of the city and its Region. Basilicata is an unspoiled country of southern Italy that needs a lot of energy, visions and innovative ideas in order to grow, and therefore meeting with people from the rest of the world is vital.

Coliving thus becomes not only a way of sharing living spaces, but a real way of promoting culture and social inclusion.

Over the years we had the privilege of hosting digital nomads, designers, curious travelers, couples and families.
Each meeting was unique and started new friendships and important opportunities for cultural exchange. 

In 2018, for example, we hosted Brent Hartiger and Michael Jensen, a couple of American origins;
they are both digital writers and nomads and for about three years they have decided to travel the world and be inspired by the places they visit for their work. For this reason, they’re constantly looking for an optimal accommodation that meets all their needs.

They lived with us in our home in Italy and with our community throughout the summer, and in their words summed up everything that means coliving for us.

“Casa Netural really is truly unique compared to other co-living facilities. For one thing, Matera itself is spectacular, very very much worth visiting. So many wonderful memories of the Sassi, which is the most fantastic place we’d never heard of before arriving somewhere. (more…)

Gillian Miller, from Montana to Matera for a coliving experience

In 2012 Casa Netural launched the Coliving project, and started aggregating in Matera people from all around the world,  to work and grow together sharing skills and projects.

Every year we host many people from different countries and recently we have been mentioned by Code Control among the coliving space top ten in Europe.

In the last two months we had the pleasure to host really many interesting people, mostly digital nomad, for example a young girl from Montana: Gillian Miller. Here’s a little interview.

“Hi Gillian, what’s your name, and where are you from?
Hi, my name is Gillian Miller, I’m 25, from Colstrip, Montana, USA.

What is your job, and how did you find Casa Netural?
I am a research associate for Remix Marketing Inc.
As remote worker, I can work from where everywhere, so I’m travelling as much as possible to discover new countries and cultures. I found Casa Netural on a Google search for the best coworking/coliving spaces in Europe. It was a bit of a whim for me. I wanted to go to Italy, and I wanted to try out coliving. I didn’t really care where I ended up. Luckily I ended up here! (more…)
