Amid The Lockdown In Italy, Citizens Sing Together From Houses Along Empty Streets To Warm Their Hearts and Souls (Videos)

Imagine the whole world singing like this from their houses.

No hate, no nothing. Just unified for once.

The Italian nationwide lockdown to control the spread of the Covid-19 disease brings Italy to a halt.

But today, in a beautiful act of solidarity, residents of Siena and other cities decided to sing and fill their city with a song and ‘happiness.’

The popular folk song called ‘Canto della Verbena’ is typically sung in the city to express local pride.

But as shown in the video below, this singing phenomenon occurred in several other cities in Italy, today.

People breaking out in song, lifting each other’s spirits during this tragedy, is an act of striking beauty.

It’s a reminder that, especially during a tragedy, the human spirit keeps us all going in hope. We shine our best in the darkness. Thank you, Siena. You made my day.

Reminiscent of the chants from Wuhan high-rise apartments early in the epidemic there. Stay strong Italy. Praying for you guys. ​
