Leave it to the Italian people to find a moment of joy and beauty in what has otherwise been a nightmare for their entire country.

Italy is currently on lockdown and it looks like it will be quite a while until life returns to normal again. The country has been hit particularly hard by the coronavirus and 60 million people are being forced to quarantine.

You can only imagine how much this has disrupted the lives of the people there, especially because Italians are so well-known for their love of life.

An Italian journalist shared a video of a vacant street in the city of Siena. In it, one man begins to sing in the darkness and then neighbors join in and all sing from their windows together.

The caption to the Twitter video says, in Italian,

“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.”

The man who posted the video said a friend sent it to him. He said about the people of Italy:

“The Italians are experiencing a very difficult time.

People cling to what they can, including a traditional song like this.”

As of this writing, there have been more than 15,000 coronavirus cases in Italy and more than 1,000 deaths.

Check out the video below.

People on Twitter were moved by the outpouring of emotion in the city of Siena.

And there were well wishes from the United States.

And someone even shared a similar video of people singing from balconies in Naples, Italy.

This person hit the nail on the head.

Be safe out there and be sure to take care of yourselves and each other!
