From 9am to 6pm within its walls, there is a choice of a floating workstation to share ideas and stories with other digital nomads, travellers, start-uppers and creators, offering a common table, private rooms, comfortable sofas and a nice “urban beach” for relaxation and better concentration. “More comfortable than the office, different from home”, 21 WOL also offers a second Milan location in the Navigli area.

4) Combo – Ripa di Porta Ticinese 83
A hostel as well as a bar, restaurant, and even a radio station, a greenhouse, a courtyard and, none the least, a co-working site.

5) Burò – Via Bergognone, 34
Quiet, spacious, conciliatory, the “Burò” project by the BASE group – among the most ardent cultural centres of the city – follows the foreign model of the project house: a shared space where professionals and companies can meet, interact and develop projects. With particular attention to activities in the cultural and creative industries (such as visual, editorial, music, audio visual, media, fashion and communication arts), this space is the perfect place to stimulate creativity, develop multidisciplinary crossovers and give live to Made in Milan cultural productions.
