The limitations that are occurring in all countries of the world, in particular the necessary and exhaustive quarantine in excess now almost everywhere, followed by the social isolation of masses of individuals, set in motion a series of persistent reflections that affect many disciplines: the already tangible consequences affect both the well-being of the individual, whether physical or psychological, and the economy, the rule of law, politics, administrations, etc.
Sociologically and psychologically speaking, the current pandemic state offers a wealth of data and information of great interest and utility, also for more effective and efficient management of the emergency.
Last year, with the "Digital Relations" project, our partnership with a consortium of organizations from Germany, COORDINATOR : Systeme in Bewegung e.V. , Bulgaria, Belgium, Poland and Spain, investigated the effects that the digital world can and is having on European families.
Given the exceptional nature of a global event such as the health emergency related to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, we cannot avoid rethinking the study from a completely new perspective. The obligation to remain in our homes has led to an immediate increase in the use of social networks in all areas of the world.
