As more and more individuals and companies of all sizes are discovering the tremendous benefits of working in a shared office space, most people think that this concept of the coworking space is innovative and brand new. Well, think again! The intermingling of people and ideas in a shared office space goes all the way back to the 15th Century in Florence, Italy.

Coworking actually began during the European Renaissance, in the “bottegas,” the workshops of the masters, like Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, where artists, architects, writers, composers and scientists all came together to think, share, communicate and cooperate. These workshops were communities that spawned creativity and nurtured new ideas and inventions. It was in these bottegas that the great masterpieces of the Renaissance were conceived and brought to life.

Now, that same powerful synergistic community that stimulated creativity and success in the coworking spaces of the 15th century workshops has inspired the modern day renaissance of the shared office space. Affordable, fully furnished and equipped coworking spaces are popping up in all the major cities from Los Angeles to London. One company in New York City, Workville NYC, provides everything you need for your business in an atmosphere conducive to success.
