Future cities require resilient, inclusive and affordable housing, but, at present, the housing system, in Europe as in Italy, is in crisis. The housing question is an issue that has never found an ultimate solution and challenges posed by societal changes such as aging, social inequality, household fragmentation are today exacerbated by financialization and the inability to scale innovative solutions. Looking for answers, communities are emerging in Europe as a key ingredient in the production of new living concepts in the housing system, also triggering and involving the public actor and the market in a learning system. Many comparative housing researches are conducted in order to answer pressing questions for the future of urban living, including how do we want to live together, what is the role of housing alternatives. The seminar aims to give an overview of the current international debate and emerging living concepts and to trigger a comparative and interdisciplinary debate on housing.
