[Autom. eng. transl.] The current crisis has produced a strong loss of security that has affected the way we work and consume. The book investigates the strategies that have been put in place to resist the crisis, innovating and reinventing themselves and work: what emerges is an extraordinary ability to devise productive and collaborative practices to react to unemployment, regain possession of the right to choose and also live in a new way. It is a change that moves from the bottom up: a swarm of solidarity or convivial activities, a sharing of resources and decisions, aimed at a reduced and balanced consumption. A sharing economy has emerged, an alternative, non-profit and for-profit economy, formal and informal, characterized by social or anti-capitalist or community aspirations, and strong creativity. Linked to the development of the internet, take advantage of all the news that appears at the turn of the millennium with web 2.0. Overall, these practices are looming as a complex universe, in which sophisticated mechanisms of recomposition between production and consumption, private and public dimension, free time and work, proximity and territorial distance, real and virtual world operate. We are therefore faced with a new cultural and economic climate with important repercussions in terms of quality of personal and social life. In short, the crisis can also be read as an opportunity. The figure of all these experiences is the contamination between the different dimensions of experience, which seems to announce new ways of working, communicating, producing, consuming, participating: in a word, living and being in the world.
