Italy - The Pandemic's Epicenter
Italien - Corona-Krise Woche Vier
The lagoon city of Venice is deserted: in week four of the Corona Crisis a picture that is as fascinating as it is disturbing. In the city, which is usually almost overwhelmed by mass tourism, squares and alleys are empty and the water in the canals is clearer than it has been for a long time.
With a special permission two South Tyrolean reporters travel to Venice and Northern Italy, which is particularly affected by the virus. They are equipped with protective masks and gloves and film security checks, night-time disinfection teams in the streets, interview virologists, small businesses and citizens. One reporter shows how his family in Bolzano coped with the unusual situation, without school lessons, excursions or outdoor sports. Many Italians seem to have found themselves in their new everyday life without everyday life in the meantime.
