Quarantined residents of Italy sing from their windows

While the coronavirus may have put a halt on a lot of things, some people are making the best of it. Italians who have been quarantined are opening their windows, grabbing their instruments and voices, and making beautiful music together. People can be seen (and heard) in their open windows, or on their balconies or rooftops, playing instruments and singing. Italy is one of the countries that has been hardest hit by the COVID-19 virus (or also known as coronavirus) and the numbers continue to climb; There’s been reported over 17,600 confirmed cases, and over 1,200 deaths. All museums, schools, theaters, arenas and universities have been closed. It’s taking a huge toll on the Italian economy and the people’s pockets. There’s not much to do when you are stuck at home and can’t go out anywhere, so people are making the best of it. One of the ways, by making music, and we think that’s a really cool and creative way to boost morale and to keep busy.
