The paper intends to give back a photograph in motion of the relationship between city and pandemic. The reflection is divided into two sections. The first, snapshots, offers brief reflections implemented through the use of some significant images like frames, which summarize some of the most relevant aspects that the pandemic has presented with its dramatic impact. The second section consists of in-depth reflections investigating the potential of empty space, starting from two different conditions, one pre-pandemic and the other infra-pandemic. In front of the dominant portrait of a segregated city, which shuns a new ecological pact with the ecosystem to fall back on protocols of prophylaxis, hygiene and biometric systems, is highlighted the active role of the “augmented” space. This space is understood as an “augmented” and dynamic substance, shaped and fed by a computer system accompanying the transformation of spaces, services, behaviors and languages.
