Even in the most desperate times, music can lift the spirits — as some Italian neighbors have proven by singing together in harmony from behind closed doors. Residents in Siena, a city in Tuscany, leaned out of their windows and broke into song. The video, was taken by a local who said they were singing to “warm their hearts” during the quarantine.
In a separate video below from Naples, shows people in neighbouring blocks on their balconies, singing and chanting upbeat messages such as “go Italy, go Naples!” and “there is no virus that can beat us.”
“Despite the gravity of the situation, it was in the nature of Italians to remain upbeat.”
“We are worried, but optimistic. The Neapolitan people love each other even with a choir from the balconies.”
“Tonight we will all do it again and we will thank the volunteer nurses and doctors who are helping us.”
“There is trust and optimism in the air… it could not be otherwise, we are Neapolitan, we are optimistic by nature.”
Let’s hope the Italian optimism spreads far and wide to show the World we can beat this together.
