And then share. Share your thoughts. Share your space. Share your choices.
Welcome to App Society! It's an extremely large community of connected users. Users who are people, first and foremost. Men and women who don't yet know one another, but who will soon share an interest, a place, a lifestyle.
It's the era of the sharing economy and of hyperconnectivity, a time in which people communicate, tell their stories, share the ways they live. And they do so from the screen of a PC, tablet or Smartphone.
Through the magical network that is the Internet, stories travel quickly from one end of the world to the other, without limits on time or space, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. While you're sitting in your kitchen waiting for the vegetable pie to bake, you can book the next flight to Paris. Here and there at the same time, and in a few weeks...
And that's how you can decide in an instant who to have dinner with this evening, how to prepare a centrepiece for Christmas lunch, where to publish the photos of an old cabinet you've just restored, who's willing to trade a new pair of shoes for your old bike. All in a single click. All in the place you call Home Sweet Home.
It's your story, but it's also the story of Andrea, who churns out miles and miles in his beloved yellow van. It's also the story of Laura, who hosts tourists in her modern attic in the centre of Bologna and dreams of opening a Sicilian trattoria in New York. It's the story of Gianmarco, who decided to get in shape and learn how to cook. And it's the story of Kristina, vegetarian yoga teacher with a home that's always full of friends over for dinner.
Stories of lives that intersect for a moment…or forever. People who leave each other and then find each other again, people who are born and who die. Stories that are lived and shared.
Paolo & Irene
Everything in our home is perfectly organized. Irene and I have been living together for quite some time, you could say we've got used to it. My name is Paolo, thirty-two years old, and I'm a nurse. My partner is an elementary school teacher. Outside working hours, we love to spend time in the open air, because one of the things that brought us together right from the start was our love of Nature. We both love going shopping at the local market; and sometimes we go a bit too far, getting too enthusiastic about all the delicious foods on display. When this happens, we buy far too much! Luckily, out kitchen is big and very functional, so there is plenty of room for all the stuff we buy. The room is bright and practical, and gives us a sense of peace and order.
Marica & Luca & Marco
Marica is a young mother who, after taking her son to school, uses Bring to do the shopping. "Mum!!! There's no milk left!!!" Hi. I'm Marica, and this is the way Marco, my six-year-old son, says "Good morning". In the morning, I start up slowly, rather like a diesel engine – slowly. But Marco is a one thousand HP jet engine. He springs from his bed and sprints into the kitchen ravenously hungry, like the big bad wolf looking for the three little pigs. By the time I come downstairs, he is already sitting at the table with a slice of cake on his plate. We love to start our day having breakfast together at the big white table.
Eleonora & Pietro
Next stop: Saint Petersburg. Last night, I and my husband Pietro decided that it's time to go on another trip. My name is Eleonora, and I love travelling. And I was fortunate enough to find a fantastic travelling companion and partner. Sometimes, though, I get the impression that he enjoys the holiday through the viewfinder of his camera, but that's fine with me: when we get home, we always have so many lasting memories and beautiful photos.
Hi. I'm Mattia, I'm thirty years old and I live in Brescia. I'm an architect, and I have recently moved into my new home. I have restructured an old apartment in the centre of town, and now it's exactly what I have always dreamed of: a space of my own with plenty of windows that give me a spectacular view of the world. My career and my life are both focused on my love for technical drawing, and I find inspiration in my set squares, rulers, pencils and sketches, which give me most of my ideas.
Hi! My name is Alessandra. I'm thirty-six years old, and I'm married to Alberto, who is two years older. You may say that we're a typical young couple from Milan. Our lifestyle is 'young', too, thanks to a great extent to our two children: Filippo, a seven-year old walking disaster zone, and Giorgia, who is eighteen months old and seems never to sleep at all. Between them, they keep us young and in shape!
Hi! I'm Elena. I'm getting on for forty, and I live with my partner, Giacomo, who is three years younger than me.
All my boyfriends seem to have been a few years younger than me, I don't know why. Either I look younger than my age, or they look older. In either case, it's never been a problem for me. On the contrary!
Hi, I’m Lieta! If you love plants and flowers, and you want to bring a bit of nature into your home, you can decorate tables and shelves with these little knick-knacks that are quick and easy to make. It's a simple idea that costs absolutely nothing. With it, you can convert a simple plastic jar into something creative and original.
Hi! My name is John! I really love boxing, which I've practised for some time. I let off steam and go back home tired, but full of verve, in the evening. I don't have time to cook. But I do spend lots of time in the kitchen, because I've hung my beloved punching bag near the table, and I pummel it when I don't manage to make it to the gym. Everyone should have one at home. The whole world would be more relaxed!
Hi, I'm Lucia! If you love a shabby chic style - the one that features simple materials such as light-coloured wood and linen, soft shades like beige, ivory, light gray and white, and flower decorations that make everything very natural - you can create your own shabby flower in only a few simple steps.
