[Autom. eng. transl.] The State in Crisis starts from a simple question: could Italy have done better in managing the Covid-19 pandemic? Through the multidisciplinary contribution of 35 experts and academics, the reader acquires the necessary knowledge to rethink events from a different perspective: that of crisis management. Quickly transformed from a health emergency to a systemic crisis, the pandemic has put our institutions to the test on multiple fronts: the ability to think in terms of complexity, the resilience of the health-social and economic system, the operational and legal tools available, 'organization and the chain of command, the articulation of clear and effective communication, the transparency of the management system and relations with other countries. The study addresses the peculiarities of the 21st century crises, the distinction with the emergency and provides the reader with some basic notions. After an analysis of how the State is organized to manage emergency and critical situations, the book analyzes in detail the management of the pandemic crisis in the first phase, the limits that have emerged, the role of scientists, experts and journalists. Covid-19 should sound like the alarm bell for the next crisis. In order not to be caught unprepared again, we must become aware that a rethinking of the state's crisis management system can no longer be postponed.
