The article aims to give a reading of the pandemic from a Gestalt perspective. It analyses first of all the background from which it emerges and its complexity. It is defined as a sick planet (Pievani, 2019) in need of new forms of sustainability (see Bellina, 2019). Human vul-nerability, made still more actual by COVID-19, is then proposed by the author as a perma-nent existential condition (Foucault, 2005), capable however of generating new creative adap-tations and new potentials (Perls et al., 1951). Placed in this frame of meaning, the pandemic can be a challenge for every single person and for larger communities.
Keywords: Figure, ground, emergency, vulnerability, adaptive strategies.
