Sharing economy, small digital platforms grow in Italy

The third Italian mapping of the sharing economy platforms will be presented in Sharitaly, held today and tomorrow at Base Milano on via Bergognone 34 in Milan. The research, curated by Marta Mainieri, from Collaboriamo, and Ivana Pais, economic sociology professor at the Catholic University, describes a scenario consisting of small growing platforms than in one year increased from 118 to 138, 208 if the crowdfunding ones are added. The economic sectors where there is sharing of goods and services – to be distinguished from the on demand economy and the Gig Economy - Foodora or Uber style – are transportation and personal services.
