ITALIANS JOIN IN TO BALCONY PARTIES AND SING ALONG TO PATRIOTIC TUNES PLAYED ON ACCORDIONS TO BOOST MORALE
Videos of Italian neighbours singing together have been appearing on social media after Italy’s prime minister Giuseppe Conte announced the restrictions that shut down virtually all daily life, and left only grocery stores, banks, and pharmacies open.
Posts have also emerged from Naples, of people singing pop artist Andrea Sannino’s song, Abbracciami. Residents in the port city of Salerno, in the south of the country, were recorded singing the country’s national anthem from their balconies.
Italians have also been trying to boost their morale by spreading a slogan of reassurance: “Andrà tutto bene” – everything will be all right.
Cheer your self up and watch this tweet from John Nichols and maybe we might see this in Fuengirola soon! I wonder what people would sing?
And to finish, 2 light humoured jokes sent in from a friend of mine actually living in Naples, Italy…
“I sneezed in the bank today, it was the most attention I have received from the staff in the last 10 years”!
“Don’t worry, the Corona Virus won’t last long… It was made in China”!
