Italians Take to the Balconies for Music and More

Amidst the devastation of COVID-19 that is raging through their country, Italians take to the balconies and windows to share their music, and boost morale.

Keep the music playing, share a song, dance if you can, and stay safe. Pace.

Towards the end of the first video from Spain, I though it was pretty cool how they had organized an exercise session. 

 

I can only imagine that if we went out to play music and exercise from our patios, someone would be complaining on NextDoor!
