Consigliate o addirittura obbligatorie, le mascherine protettive sono entrate a far parte della nostra vita, diventando il segno visibile dell’emergenza legata alla pandemia di Covid-19. Sono una barriera protettiva per impedire il con­tagio, un confine per separare la popolazione sana da quella malata, un nuo­vo indumento che cela parte del viso rendendo difficile riconoscere l’identità individuale. Queste “maschere della salute” hanno una lunga storia in ambito medico (dalle maschere della peste alle mascherine chirurgiche) e costituisco­no ormai strumenti di prevenzione anche nel lavoro e nello sport. Il loro signi­ficato supera talvolta la semplice funzione sanitaria e protettiva, assumendo una rilevanza simbolica con implicazioni psicologiche e sociali, culturali e antropologiche. Tutte dimensioni che, insieme a quella storica, sono analizzate in questo volume. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… Recommended or even mandatory, protective masks have become part of our lives, becoming the visible sign of the emergency linked to the Covid-19 pandemic. They are a protective barrier to prevent contagion, a border to separate the healthy population from the sick one, a new garment that hides part of the face making it difficult to recognize individual identity. These "health masks" have a long history in medicine (from plague masks to surgical masks) and are now tools of prevention also in work and in sport. Their meaning sometimes goes beyond the simple health and protective function, assuming a symbolic significance with psychological and social, cultural and anthropological implications. All dimensions which, together with the historical one, are analyzed in this volume.]
