'Stay at home!': Italian mayors send emotional plea to residents — video 5

Town, city and regional mayors have been sending emotional pleas to residents to stay indoors after witnessing people flouting a nationwide lockdown by going jogging, playing ping pong and taking 'exhausted dogs' for long walks. The appeal came as the Italian government banned any travel inside the country and closed all non-essential businesses as it desperately tries to stem the spread of a coronavirus  This is how the mayors of Bari, Messina, Lucera, Gualdo Tadino, the Governor of Campania, and the mayor of Reggio Calabria have addressed their constituents

I have to say Italian is the best language for emotional yelling.

I'm Italian and just want you to know that the major who is talking about the haidressers also says : " the hairstyle is useless since none is seeing you because the coffin is going to be closed" 🤣

These mayors all sound like pissed off dads when their kids screw up. Pray and hope Italy can beat this thing very soon.

The one who wants to send the Police with flamethrower is Vincenzo De Luca. In Italy he is called "The sheriff", you can imagine why. His way of speaking is hilarious, really.

Just realised how perfect the Italian language seems for expressing frustration.

Calm mayor: We'll send the police
Kids: and do what? disperse?, fine? arrest?
Mayor: Fire & Blood.
