In the current moment of global pandemic we continue to believe that one of the political tasks of the commons is to generate again a sense of collective ascription, where the idea of ‘re-enchanting the city’ means to be able to recognise again, in our bodies, in our lives, that all these apparently disconnected processes of taking care of each other, gardening, building cooperatives, creating alternative economies, not only make sense but are linked as part of a social system.
This book (in Spanish), which has benefited from the support and participation of Commonspolis, presents experiences, recently carried out in Spanish and Italian cities, where people are thinking about how to rearticulate and reformulate the sphere of social reproduction from the local scale.
