Italy is now in a lockdown. That much we know. But despite not being able to go outside, and despite having empty streets, the spirit of the country’s people never falter; they find a way to cheer themselves up amidst the sad reality of the current lockdown because of the coronavirus. Across the balconies and windows in the cities of Rome, Milan, Naples, and Palermo, the people sing together and crash pots and pans together, as well as applaud the heroic healthcare workers. The events were organized through WhatsApp.
They also shouted phrases including 'Viva l'Italia' (Long live Italy) and 'Vinceremo' (we will win). The few cars on the street joined the chorus by blaring their horns.
Many also waved banners decorated with rainbows and the phrase 'Andra tutto benne' (everything will go well).
