Tiberio Sorvillo’s photograph taken early in the spring 2020 Lockdown encapsulates the ghostly feeling of isolation that swept through Italy. As the bull and bear, symbols of the stock market, look down at the abandoned market stalls, shops and bars of Bozen/Bolzano’s usually bustling Piazza delle Erbe, we call into question the economic repercussions of Covid-19. Little did anyone expect that an image so previously unimaginable could once again become a common tableau, as we face Lockdown 2.0.
