Of course we could rely on Italians to create beauty and joy even in the trying times of a global pandemic. 

Lately, people in the country have started coming out on their balconies and leaning out their windows to join together in song, coordinating the effort by spreading the word via social media. Last Friday, Italians sang the national anthem together at 6pm; on Saturday, they joined together to applaud health-care workers.

As the week has progressed, more and more videos are emerging of Italians singing their favorite classics from their balconies as the sound echoes off the empty streets. Watching videos of Italians create a semblance of community, even while in isolation, is pure delight. If you want to marvel the love and resilience summoned by Italians dealing with the isolation that comes with being under quarantine, follow the link here. We’re sure it’ll warm your heart and help keep spirits up.
