This Video of Italians Singing in Solidarity Amid Coronavirus Isolation Should Raise Everyone’s Spirits

, , ,

Italy is locked down in quarantine. On Thursday evening, David Allegranti, a journalist working for Il Foglio newspaper, shared footage of Italians singing a local folk song together in the darkened streets in Siena, a town in the country’s north. He wrote on Twitter, “In Siena, the city to which I am very attached, you stay at home but you sing together as if you were on the street. I was moved.”

Though he did not take the footage himself, Allegranti told HuffPost he was still equally touched while watching and felt the need to share.

“This video is touching,” Allegranti, who is based in Rome, told the news website. “The first time I saw it I started to cry.”
