Songs cannot be quaranteened

A video taken recently in the locked-down city of Siena, Italy, shows neighbors wo cannot leave their homes leaning from their windows to sing with each other during the nationwide caronavirus crisis. The song, titled Canto della Verbena (And while Siena Sleeps) is a beloved local folk song traditionally sung as a means of expressing pride in the beautiful Tuscan city.

Many viewers have been deeply touched by the heartwarming footage, which illustrates the enduring resilience and pride of the Italian people in a very difficult time. One Twitter user wrote, "Imagine the whole world singing like this from their houses. No hate, no nothing. Just unified for once."
