Session Description: One year into the pandemic. Something unexpected that has completely changed our lives: our sense of time and space, our mobility, our habits. It’s a catastrophy, as the ancient Greeks said, and the etimology teaches us. It’s an upside-down world. Neverthless all the Beauty is still here. The Nature has taken back its spaces as the Art inspires even more respect despite ghost cities and empty squares. The dialogue between us and the places can even become more intense. It depends on which point of view you choose.
