Urban solidarity networks as antidote for global epidemics/ Le reti di solidarietà urbana come antidoto per le epidemie globali
The Covid-19 emergency leads us to reflect upon the issues related to the unpredictability and exceptionality of the phenomenon, introducing new reforms that are in stark contrast with the practices of local contexts. In this scenario the city can become the place where the “metabolization” of crisis phenomena takes place through widespread forms of adaptation. The study aims to analyze the practices that are being experimented in this period in order to mitigate the effects of the pandemic. We speak of tactics aimed at building networks of urban solidarity, guaranteeing subsistence services to citizens and promoting practices of mutualism and collaboration aimed at codifying new forms of social capital. Through solidarity networks examples, the research highlights how forms of active territoriality can contribute to the resilience of the urban system in times of crisis.
