About Genoa

Built along the coast south of Milan, Genoa is the capital of Italy’s Liguria region and one of the country’s most important ports. Its importance in seafaring trade is why it’s consistently been one of Italy’s most economically stable cities throughout its long history. An average of 58 million tons of cargo go through the Port of Genoa each year, the most of any Italian port. Along with trade and tourism, agriculture and education are two main pillars of the Genoa economy. Higher education in Genoa started as early as the 13th century and the city’s largest college, the University of Genoa, was founded in the 1400s, making it one of the oldest in the world as well as the largest in Italy. While there are many historic buildings in Genoa, the most famous is the Cathedral of San Lorenzo, whose black-and-white striped façade is the iconic image of the city. The city’s many palaces are what earned its World Heritage designation. Many can be seen walking down the Via Garibaldi, a narrow pedestrian-only street lined with impressive architecture. Other key attractions include the Piazza de Ferrari, Porta Soprana, and Forte Begato.

What are Co-living Spaces?

Co-living, also known as co-housing, house-sharing, or room-sharing, is a growing trend in big cities across the country. Co-living is when a group of people—often strangers—come together to share common living spaces, save money, and enjoy a more affordable lifestyle. Apartment buildings dedicated to co-living situations will offer 2 or 3 bedroom units with common areas including a living room, kitchen and dining area. Bedrooms and bathrooms may be private or shared. Co-living differs from a typical shared rental (roommate) situation in that co-living spaces are frequently furnished, don’t require long leases, and almost always include WiFi and utilities. They can also include housekeeping services and some even offer catered functions for tenants, housemates, and their guests. Co-living property managers handle billing and repairs of the building, generally through an app. The typical demographic enjoying a co-living lifestyle are millennials and young professionals in large cities and tech hubs such as San Francisco or Austin, but they are also starting to pop up in cities around the world. People of all ages who find themselves in need of affordable housing are increasingly looking to co-living as a viable option.
