Italy is under quarantine and this COVID-19 lockdown will probably last until April 3.
People throughout the country must not leave their homes except for work or emergencies, carrying a pass where they state the nature of their travel.
Schools, universities, libraries, cinemas, galleries and gyms are closed; all public gatherings, including weddings and funerals, are banned and sporting events suspended.
The need to stay at home is a decision made also to protect the most vulnerable people in the country… and at age 70, I belong to this category.
I hope we will soon be able to get back to doing all the things we love.
