As the work culture is being reshaped with coworking spaces taking big and small towns all over the world, the same is happening in Italy. The country known for its sandy beaches and exquisite cuisine, is now also home to some unique coworking spaces, and their numbers are continuously growing every year.
Initially, mostly Rome and Milan were well equipped for remote workers, but now one can find a coworking space even in small villages in the country. They obviously vary in sizes and coziness, but luckily most of them have been designed thoroughly with high attention to details, something which this country has always been known for.
The two biggest chains of coworking spaces in Italy are Impact Hub and Copernico, and for that reason, we are paying special attention to them as they are good examples of of quintessential coworking space chain. While you might have heard of Impact Hub before, the big Austrain chain of coworking spaces taking over the World with operations in over 50 countries.
Copernico, on the other hand, is something like a hidden gem for most of us. Positioning themselves as more than a network – an ecosystem, Copernico shows that through their interior design. Described as a people-centered space where efficiency and productivity merge with beauty, art, sustainability and cultural enrichment, Copernico definitely stands among others and is definitely worth your attention. Beyond those two, we selected a few other unique coworking spaces in Italy.
