Photos from Florence, Italy during the shutdown

What is happening in Italy today? 

Italians have been under stay at home orders for weeks leaving the streets empty, stores closed and tourists returning home to wait out the pandemic.

As a few of the strict rules are being changed or lifted, Italian cities are seeing a few signs of life.  

The Italian flag is found on many balconies and hung from windows

When have you seen the piazza in front of Santa Croce empty?

The Basilica di Santa Croce (Basilica of the Holy Cross)

Locals leave food for anyone in need to help themselves

This street is usually packed with tourists
