[Business Models - Multipurpose Spaces - Positive Impact]
Read the story of Millepiani on page 40 of our book.
There is a saying we always share with people we meet when we talk about coworking spaces and it goes like this: “Coworking is the same dish everyone cooks differently.” And the story you are about to read is the perfect illustration of it. Bringing up a food analogy when going to Italy might sound cliché, but Millepiani truly is a unique coworking dish.
We’ve been following Felipe and Silvia since 2016, and their journey with Millepiani has been one of resilience, dedication, and patience.
Resilience, because the duo has had a hard journey to get to where they are, including working with multiple stakeholders (such as the municipality of Rome as their landlord).
Dedication, because although it has been hard, they never stop believing in each other and in what they want to achieve through their space. If you keep reading, you’ll discover what we mean.
And finally, Patience, because beyond being on a journey to build a coworking community, they’ve also challenged themselves to educate people and institutions on the hidden powers of a physical space centered on people. It’s about time for you to discover how they’ve achieved it all. Without further ado, meet Millepiani Coworking.
