Villaggio Barona (Milan) and Villaggio Solidale (Mirano) are examples of co-social housing. They promote mutual support among residents through network strategies and they include both "ordinary" and poorer people in order to satisfy their housing need and increase social mix. Co-social housing aims to create friendly neighbourhoods promoting both bridging e bonding social capital.
