The Covid-19 pandemic has had profound impacts on all societies. The State and the Administration have not been left out but are in an environment characterized by dynamic changes and contingent. The changes initiated a few years before on the function and extension of the State have been accentuated, and the administrations will have to adapt to very unstable conditions: changes in the economy and political actors, rapid reformulation of methods, new demands, relationship with the society. Two central questions appear in this scenario. The first one is descriptive in nature, about the transformation of the State and the Public Administration in an insecure, complex, and contingent environment. In the second of a methodological-conceptual nature, there is a need to seek and apply concepts and logics capable of interdisciplinary dialogue and with sufficient suitability and sophistication to describe this complexity.
