In this period of deep economic crisis, a growing number of Italian families are facing the "housing problem". Despite dwindling public resources and several constraints imposed by the EU regulation, social housing is rising up the political agenda in order to address the "affordable housing shortage" in a direct and holistic way. In Italy there is an urgent need for ethical private actors to enter the social housing sector. Besides the principle of cheap housing, this new approach also involves other concerns such as new types of dwellings, building quality, energy saving and the creation of tight-knit communities. In light of the new legislative framework for the delivery of social housing in Italy, this paper gives an overview of the major trends in the national sector, with a focus on discussing the governance issues and the new funding models.
