The reorganization of the welfare system in the Municipality of Milan brings along a reconsideration of the issue of access to welfare services, meant in its material and immaterial sense, through the creation of a web platform and a number of territorial platforms dislocated in the city, the WeMi Spaces. These have been conceived and are now taking the shape of places where to meet and listen to the citizens, to orient them to the existing services and to design innovative individual or collective solutions. This contribution aims at presenting an experience of direct observation inside the WeMi Spaces, with the purpose of highlighting their main features and to stimulate further reflections on the relations between spaces, welfare services and territories
