[Autom. eng. transl.] Among the analyzes on the spread of Covid-19 carried out in recent months in Italy, studies on the possible economic and social effects of the epidemic prevail (Cersosimo and Viesti 2020; Martini 2020), on the more realistic measurement of positive cases and deaths (Bucci 2020 , Istat 2020, Marino and Musolino 2020), or on the consequences of health and containment policies (Pisano et.al. 2020; Celata 2020). Sometimes also territorial variables, socio-economic and environmental factors are evoked such as population density, production agglomeration, air pollution (Setti et.al.2020; Gorla 2020). It is hypothesized that these context factors may facilitate the spread of the virus, creating more favorable conditions for contagion, because they facilitate human interactions, internally and externally to the area considered (physical proximity and frequency of contact between individuals) or because they are vectors of virus transport or factors affecting the severity and prognosis of the symptomatic and pathological pictures associated with the infection, as in the case of PM10 or PM2.5 atmospheric particulates.
