Discover all the benefits for property owners

DoveVivo takes over the management of the properties from the owners and leases them as shared accommodations, under medium and long term rental contracts, to workers, interns, business travellers, young professionals, undergraduates and graduate students.
In this manner, it ensures an ongoing flow of revenues that remains constant over time.

DoveVivo's company culture is based on mutual support, receptiveness to new ideas and entertainment. DoveVivo does more than managing properties: it seeks the engagement of communities which are veritable melting pots of young people from different cultural backgrounds and lifestyles, with a common denominator: living in shared facilities.

Simplicity for tenants

Since 2007, more than 10.000 tenants have lived in the housing units rented by DoveVivo.

Our commitment to the environment

In collaboration with the FAI (The Italian Fund for the Environment) we are working on a major environmental protection project which also constitutes an ambitious cultural challenge: to make Italy a more attractive place to live, work and grow.
The environmental and cultural heritage, which the FAI works to protect and promote, is this country’s unique asset and is the fundamental resource to invest in to rejuvenate, develop and enhance our magnificent country. This is #DoveVivo, our home.

We want an Italy that is better protected and even more beautiful.
With the FAI, we are working to make it happen.
