Historic centers are fundamental heritage places in cities, bringing together central functions and historicity, making them spaces of exchange and encounter, of permanence and change, of density and massiveness. The Covid-19 pandemic and the various measures to prevent its spread, such as quarantines and social distancing, have caused historic centers and their inhabitants to be particularly affected, closing most of the public and private activities that gave life to their daily lives and emptying the public spaces where people circulated, met and stayed. Markets and informal commerce is another element to be analyzed in historic centers, both in terms of use and vitality as well as sanitary hygiene. In this context, the present session seeks to inquire into the situation of historic centers faced with pandemics, how these phenomena have affected them and in what way they have faced them throughout their history.
