Reflections in Time of Covid 19
This section is a collection of thoughts, articles and reflections of the Sermig Fraternity and of some collaborators of our magazine Nuovo Progetto, which emerge from having experienced the Coronavirus pandemic that in this first part 2020 has hit all humanity hard.

We believe this is only possible by stopping for a moment to reflect.
