format: Article | COMUNICAZIONI SOCIALI - 2021 - 1. Arts-Based Research in Communication and Media Studies | Open Access
Year: 2021
This article analyses an artistic urban regeneration project, subsidised by the Italian Ministry of Culture (Creative Living Lab Prize 2018-2019.)

In this essay, I explore the digital ritual responses initiated by the ‘Corona death’ as a global media event and analyse how this event and related ritualisation materialised in the Spring and early Summer of 2020.
