Da ‘Parasite’ alla pandemia. Come le città coreane possono aprire la via verso una urbanistica globale post-Covid

Ken Fallas, Ekaterina Kochetkova

Abstract


La natura non negozia, e la pandemia da Covid-19 lo ha dimostrato innescando un esperimento in tempo reale su una civiltà auto-confinata che cerca di reagire negli ambienti più densamente abitati: le città. In poche settimane, la Corea del Sud è riuscita a spostare l’attenzione del mondo dal suo film satirico “Parasite”, che tratta la disuguaglianza sociale nelle città e l’isolamento dell’uomo moderno, verso la sua capacità di rallentare la diffusione del virus, nonostante inizialmente fosse uno dei territori maggiormente colpiti. Tuttavia, la resilienza delle città coreane non si è basata solo su un sistema trace-test-treat (tracciamento-test-trattamento), ma su un’emergente visione urbanistica basata sulla tecnologia ed incentrata sull’uomo. Questo studio si propone di presentare le esperienze delle città sudcoreane che hanno permesso al paese di superare la crisi attuale e di analizzare come queste possano essere d’esempio per altre città nel mondo post-COVID.
