The Covid-19 pandemic has unveiled the fragility of urban systems and the need to rethink the forms of contemporary living towards more collaborative ways. In response to the shortcomings of Italian public welfare, networks of solidarity between fragile people and third sector actors have emerged, highlighting the intertwining of geographies of inequalities and the spatialization of proximity. This article seeks to analyse the mutualism actions carried out by citizens and civic organizations of Catania during the lockdown of the pandemic when there was a high socio-economic emergency even before health one. The authors aim to outline what the transformative and long-term horizon of solidarity practices has been and can continue to be and how these can translate into public policies that are adaptive and connected to the needs of places.
