Abitare is a multimedia information tool. It has a printed format, a digital format and a website, all in both Italian and English. But not only that: it is constantly evolving. It adopts innovative, original modes of communication, fosters events and builds information and knowledge opportunities with the aim of developing new audiences.

Each month Abitare presents in-depth articles on the most recent architecture products, the most interesting reports on design and production, and an investigation into phenomena that also in a broader sense and from an interdisciplinary standpoint are connected with the world of planning and design. Abitare is a periodical that speaks authoritatively to all design and architecture professionals and gives voice to the world's foremost architects.

The website is characterized by simple, clean graphics with a clear news hierarchy and is also optimized for mobile devices.

In addition, within the Abitare DE App, but also through the Abitare.it website, it is possible to browse through the PREVIEW version of the magazine, an approximately 40 page advance look at each issue, exclusively digital and free of charge, and the first FREE DIGITAL EDITION, an edition created ad hoc, around 150 pages per issue, on the occasion of trade fairs and events or on special topics identified by the editorial staff.
