According to Jurij Lotman (2006), the cultural intertwining that characterise the human behaviour in various periods can be defined as mythology of everyday and social behaviour. Starting from this methodological assumption, the article investigates the dynamics of covering/uncovering in dress fashion along three paragraphs. The first is dedicated to the link between images of veiling and mourning, both in western Christian and pre-Christian cultures. Protective coverings for COVID, and other recent phenomena such as the black dress code of the #MeToo movement, have their roots in this tradition. In the second paragraph, the reflection is based on the opposition between / must be seen/ vs / must not be seen/, which generates regimes of /constraint/, /taboo/, /transgressive style/ / and /casual style/. In the western context it seems that a neutral term has now become established, that is a randomness of styles (/neither transgressive, nor casual/) while the more traditionalist Islam seems to remain within the /taboo/ by imposing on women, the use of the veil and body cover, albeit with variations. However, in the third and last paragraph I will discuss the so-called Islamic modest fashion, a relatively recent phenomenon that seems to create an unprecedented complex term, which combines the traditional restrictions for women's dressing with an increased attention to elegance and ease of movement. In conclusion, we will reflect on the wider cultural context of this change, since the hegemony of transgression or randomness of Western customs seem to be largely declining globally, with further examples in television series and films production.

Background and aims: Although COVID-19 infection predominantly manifests with respiratory symptoms, recent studies have also reported the occurrence of neurological involvement in the acute phase as well as in the follow-up of recovered subjects Methods: Our study focuses on assessing the prevalence of neurological sequelae in COVID-19 patients hospitalized at Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico in Milan. Seventy-five COVID-19 recovered subjects followed a general follow-up protocol including pneumological, infectious and cardiovascular assessment 5-10 months after the onset of SARS-CoV2 infection;among them, a subset of 53 patients was evaluated through a self-administered 18-item questionnaire developed ad-hoc addressing sensory, motor and cognitive neurological symptoms. Results: Collected data has shown that 77.4% patients developed at least one neurological sequela, and 46.3% presented with more than three symptoms. Among symptomatic patients, the most prevalent manifestations were insomnia (65.9%) and daytime sleepiness (46.3%), followed by walking difficulties (31.7%). Other less frequent symptoms were headache (15.1%), hyposmia and hypogeusia (15.1%), and tremor (9.4%). Prevalence of symptoms 18-item questionnare showing the distribution of neurological manifestations Conclusion: Post-COVID-19 manifestations are reported in about 90% of recovered patients. This preliminary study suggests that neurological findings represent a significant part of such manifestations. We are currently expanding the questionnaire to a larger cohort of patients and correlating our findings with patients' demographical and clinical features, as well as with the severity of the previous SARSCoV2 infection. Currently, the same questionnaire is also being validated and administered to age-and sex-matched healthy controls who have not developed symptoms suggestive of Covid-19, and a cohort of non-COVID-19 hospitalized patients.
