It was back in 2012 when we launched our rural coliving project in Matera (10 years ago).
Born with the aim of generating a new social impact in Southern Italy, through the promotion of inspirational meetings and exchanges of visions between international guests and the local community, coliving soon became one of the most important projects of our association, generating worldwide friendships and connections as well as continuous evolution for our members.
In these 10 years of activity, we have had the pleasure of hosting in Matera people from all over the world: social innovators, curious travellers, and in recent years especially digital nomads or in general people who work remotely have the possibility to travel and work from the place they prefer.
Focusing in particular on these last guests, the most fascinating thing is that often, what attracts them to Matera is not the city itself, but the possibility to join a place like Casa Netural, place that allows them to comfortably work on their projects and at the same time to share social moments and experiences together with the community and the other professionals who are living in our house.
Nowadays, indeed, more and more so-called digital nomads are combining the possibility of working remotely with their notebooks with a nomadic lifestyle, traveling and merging into different communities as true temporary residents of the place.
And there are more and more coliving spaces as well. (more…)
