Among the many things that characterise life in the 21st century, there is a sense of omnipotence that distinguishes us, human beings. Used to be always interconnected, always on the go, always accustomed to do as we please, inebriated by the conviction that anything we wish is possible, we often tend to forget how small we are in the greater order of things. Who could imagine, no longer than a month ago, that life as we knew it could be turned upside down so quickly? And, to cap it all, by something so small, so invisible to the human eye as a virus. And yet, it happened. And it is forcing all of us, in our public and private lives, to completely rethink our long-rooted habits.
