In 2020, around 45,000 workers in large companies and 100,000 people in total returned to the South to tackle the pandemic by working remotely.
This phenomenon is known as ""South Working"" (SW) and gave birth to South Working - Lavorare dal Sud®, a non-profit association with three missions:
1) Advocacy and social movement
2) Observation of the SW phenomenon
3) Support to Municipalities, Bodies and Institutions.
