UnplayedRome May 2020
On May 4th in Rome, as well as in the rest of Italy, the public parks reopened, previously closed at the beginning of the lockdown to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
Citizens are finally free to access the green areas by complying with the ban on gatherings and the inter-personal distance of at least one metre.
However, some areas inside the parks are still forbidden, such as areas equipped for children's play, benches, sports equipment and areas where it is not possible to maintain social distance or to avoid the gathering.
These urban spaces normally associated with social and carefree outdoor life are now portrayed as desolate and suspended places through which traces of virus threaten a new series of contagions.
