It is quite complex to predict, through estimates and analyses, how the pandemic will change our lives, housing and the future of cities. The economic, social and healthcare impacts could overlap, upsetting even our most consolidated habits, forcing us to rethink our homes and cities. The pandemic could also provide the chance, unfortunately a dramatic one, for inaugurating a new era of reforms based on the resolution of structural issues, such as improving the efficiency of city government, implementing the use of public assets, and increasing the interaction between the different policies aimed at specific settings. This paradigmatic shift could be financed with the national and European measures currently being discussed. In this scenario Rome, a city with considerable critical unresolved issues but also one with great potential, should aspire to become the Capital and the largest laboratory in Italy also in terms of experimentation of innovative policies.
