The COVID-19 crisis has had significant impacts on public health, on the lives of millions of people, and on economic development prospects at all levels, international, national, and local. All over the world, cities have been at the forefront of the crisis, as first responders to the needs of the population, as managers of the exceptional regulations needed to overcome the situation, and as promoters of the reopening and relaunching of economic and social life. The effects of the crisis will be felt for a long time, and this will require innovative responses that will see cities as protagonists.

To initiate a reflection on these trends, an International Survey has been proposed, to discuss the short-term and medium-term impacts of COVID-19 (2-3 years) in large cities/metropolitan areas. The proponents of the Survey are: Francesco Bandarin, Former UNESCO ADG Culture; Enrico Ciciotti, Former Dean, Faculty of Economics, Catholic University of Piacenza; Marco Cremaschi, Centre d’études européennes et de politique comparée, Sciences Po, Paris; Paolo Perulli, University of Eastern Piedmont.

Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei has offered valuable staff support, including Diana Shendrikova and Giovanna Madera.
