Abstract

In the complex of initiatives, policies and structures aimed at improving living conditions, care-giving has found cities to be the privileged place of a form of social commitment that has generated dedicated spaces, management bodies, strategies and, lastly, the preservation of memory as part of the urban heritage. In cities, as evidence of that described, there are antique buildings that once offered hospitality, assistance and welfare, an expression of how different historical eras assigned importance to the sphere of care-giving in urban social life, leaving traces of it also on the language. The medical term quarantine, for example, refers to practices in use in Venice during plague epidemics and, in defining isolation, implies a relationship with urban space. In the contemporary age, the notion of “public health” as a need and a civil right became more precise, linked to a different scale of recognition and procedures. Lastly, the welfare state has made healthcare an essential public and state service. Today, new horizons are redefining the global identification of these needs. The contribution focuses on developments of these achievements including gender issues, and some of the urgencies that the pandemic has revealed, with some critical suggestions for reconsidering it in connection with the developments of the city and urban history.In the complex of initiatives, policies and structures aimed at improving living conditions, care-giving has found cities to be the privileged place of a form of social commitment that has generated dedicated spaces, management bodies, strategies and, lastly, the preservation of memory as part of the urban heritage.
