In the last two years everything has been questioned, but what does tomorrow hold? There are no clear and definitive answers! There can only be two ways: forget the past and go back to consuming, polluting and living as if nothing had happened, or understand that a pandemic has changed our relationships, our relations with objects and space. The global isolation of recent months has certainly changed many things on many levels. An unprecedented change. The most important has certainly been the change in ourselves. Our daily life and our leisure time. Today the role of the city must take into account these variables and move towards new designs and planning thoughts. Already in 16th century Italy the ideal city was an important form of expression on a human scale where aesthetics and ethics coexisted in harmony. My speech aims first to retrace the past from which we come to understand who before us imagined the future, and then to shed light on possible future scenarios where our senses could be put to the test.
