2. They're so relentlessly social, this must be very hard for them.

But that's nice to see.

7. Yeah, until they disagree on the next song


After that, everybody on one side of the street hates the other side of the street for the next 100 years.

6. I don't know whether to smile or weep.

Singing in the face of death is a truly noble human trait, and so touching. But to be at this point...

9. Think what many of these towns and cities have survived

In this country, you see something that dates back to the 1600's and you think, "Wow, that's old."

In Italy, that's like last week.

21. I did both. Italy is my favorite country in the whole world.

I've been there once, and I've hoped to be able to go back, doubt it will ever happen.

Oh, how this brought me joy and hope.

I am picturing the one drunk guy who doesn't realize it's 4 a.m. and he should stop singing.

I think this needs to be a global challenge. Next up? Switzerland and yodeling!

10. I am not a person who is easily moved.

But for some reason this is making me want to cry. I think weíre in serious danger here. For the first time in my life, Iím truly concerned about the fate of humanity. I really hope we can get past this intact. I really hope we can do better after itís over.

15. Oh, humanity will get through this



That negative slope from around 1350 to 1400 is Europe practically being emptied out by the Black Death.

If everyone on the planet got covid-19 and it was flat out 10% fatal it would be horrific, but humanity would still win.

33. Yes, I realize that.

But the fact that anyone could be a part of that hypothetical 10% is sobering.

19. I fell in love with Italy the first time I visited.

Itís an incredibly beautiful country, but its people are truly fantasticóand passionate about all aspects of life, as these videos demonstrate. Iíve gone back to Italy four times since that first trip, and I never tire of the country.

20. I watched "The Secret of Santa Vittoria" last week, with Anthony Quinn. This is like watching that.

The barking dog in the last one is the best punctuation of all.

24. I love this.

I have had one anxious day. All the schools in the state closing, several businesses, and not certain how long my work will last. We are considered essential employees. I work for a tribe in Washington State. Trying to stay calm but the sense of not knowing what is coming down the road is getting to me. So very glad this thread was posted music always helps!

25. That's great

It reminds e of the ending of the film Chacun Cherche Son Chat when all the Parisians in the neighborhood, of all ages, religions, and backgrounds, get together in a cafe and start singing "Ca C'est Paris"

30. So poignant and powerful!

The complete lyrics in both Italian and English written by Goffredo Mameli and set to music by Michele Novaro in 1847 resonate these times as well.
