We provide products to many organizations in the construction industry and we can attest to how important it is to share information.

On May 17, Bay Fastening Systems applauds the efforts of Impossible Living, which is attempting to find ways to restore abandoned buildings and revitalize neighborhoods all over the globe.

According to the article by Fast Co.Exist, “The world is full of abandoned buildings: factories left by companies that went somewhere else, suburban subdivisions from the boom years, crumbling farms and churches in remote places. Italy has an estimated 2 million such properties; Spain, another 3.5 million; America, many more.”

Impossible Living is a website started by Andrea Sesta, who lives in Milan, Italy, and partner Daniela Galvani. "It’s a communication tool between the activator and the community," Sesta says in the article.

"For us, this place is very important because it’s a way to rethink the abandoned world, reconstructing a territory that’s basically dead," Sesta continues. "The big value is that the property is worth nothing almost, so you can have a lot of space for free."

The website lets users add photos and locations of abandoned buildings and share ideas with other users on how to reactivate those buildings. The goal is to turn abandoned structures into functional buildings again, and on a broader scale revitalize whole communities. The website has multiple reactivation project running, including several in Italy. “Artists and technologists are now beginning to move in, attracted by open space, and cheap prices,” according to the article.

Pop rivet distributor Bay Fastening Systems applauds Impossible Living’s efforts. “Individually, it can be difficult to make a large impact,” says Richard Nappi. “We provide products to many organizations in the construction industry and we can attest to how important it is to share information. By pooling knowledge, resources and ideas, Impossible Living has the ability to turn abandoned buildings into habitable spaces and rebuild communities.”
