The physical and social distancing measures with which we reacted to the first phase of the Covid emergency19, precisely for an almost generalized application to profoundly different territories and populations, have contributed to accentuating the inequalities in access to spaces and services by more fragile components of the population (elderly, children, lonely people and people with disabilities, poor, invisible, immigrants, …).
Dealing with the multiple inequalities that affect housing (home, work, services, …) and that the arrest of interpersonal and social relationships and practices imposed by the health emergency has increased, allows us to circumscribe and better understand the dramatic conditions in which increasingly large groups of people live. Recent analyzes by the Bank of Italy and Istat as well as the Disability Forum show current states and forecasts oriented towards a spread of poverty and the inevitable lack of adequate answers to requests for housing, work and services. It is therefore necessary to re-compose the general framework within which it must be possible to insert even unexpressed requests for public housing, spaces for small work, services (primarily social health and welfare and education). Consistently, it is necessary to rethink the solutions with which public policies and actions (but not only) are able to react promptly both to emergency conditions and to structural changes (such as those induced by the worsening of the economic crisis and by the aging population scenarios urban). The meeting that is part of the “Cities accessible to all” program ( aims to identify guidelines and guidelines useful for defining priorities, strategies, tools, through the organization of discussion tables made up of representatives of significant experiences grouped by coherent themes, taking care to maintain the basic differences.
