Although history has frequently identified subsidised housing with economical popular housing, this paper reconsiders the role played by some public sector actors in the construction of housing for white collar workers in Italy in the 1950s and 1960s. The paper attempts a preliminary and brief account of the work of Incis (Istituto Nazionale per la Casa degli Impiegati dello Stato - national housing institute for state office workers) in Italy in the post-war period. It focuses in particular on the contribution of this institution to collective imagery, symbols and housing models - ranging from the urban scale to domestic interiors - and to the places where those models were formulated and transmitted, the result of a meeting of institutional programmes, professional cultures and the housing aspirations of public sector office workers.
Keywords: Incis; white collar class; public sector residential building
