Casa Verdi is a coliving space in Sicily. We try to be more than just that by enhancing a more sustainable way of travelling through meeting and engaging with locals and digital nomads. We would love to make it possible for those who choose our region to seed their project to find a lively space where they can meet inspiring people and confront their thoughts with like minded individuals. 

 

We also try to live the house as a setting for an emergent interior life. 

 

Project description:

We try to approach our business like a family, influenced by the Italian culture for family driven enterprises and fusing it with elements of the co-living movement. We are convinced that the application of these ideas in different fields of economics could lead to simplifying processes and provide a new and improved work-life balance.
