The measures relating to Covid-19 containment changed deeply our lifestyles in the past months and still now, especially for what regards the use of public space. Private space suddenly became predominant for the impellent needs of the social distancing, sometimes with dramatic effects. This situation highlighted the importance of rethinking public policies on housing and services provision and at the same time suggested as a possible strategy for contagion prevention the rebalancing between urban systems densely inhabited and internal areas of the country in demographic decline. Particularly, attention will be paid to a southern internal area where population density is low, high-unused housing stock is available and environmental standards are higher.The objective is to build a methodological proposal for supporting municipalities’ repopulation policies in inland areas, taking into account contagion prevention. Reasoning about integrated forms of social housing spread throughout the historical fabric and the adequate services provision can provide an effective solution, with particular regard to the most vulnerable social categories, which are most exposed to pandemics risks.
