The essay proposes a reflection on multilocalism on the base of the most recent international studies, with attention to the impact of this phenomenon on the identity of families, migrants and highly mobile workers and to the associated socio-territorial dynamics. Attention will also be paid to the impact that events such as the Covid-19 pandemic have had on the limi-tation of freedom of movement and on the life and identity of multi-local subjects.

Keywords: multilocality, mobility, Covid-19, identity, technology, family
