On March 13, 2020 the Spanish Government announced a state of alarm as an exceptional measure to contain the pandemic caused by the coronavirus, it was the beginning of a series of exceptional measures that would be extended a long the whole year. In 2020, the city of Barcelona, known as Barna by its locals, has seen its day-to-day altered while the health crisis was joined by the economic and emotional crisis. 40% of the Spanish population recognizes that their emotional health has worsened throughout the year, experiencing episodes of fear and anxiety.
