Being isolated due to the lockdown caused by Coronavirus was not a problem for two of our citizens. Last Sunday two friends had a brilliant idea: have a lunch being each other in their own balcony, at security distance and respecting the #stayathome prescription. They live in the center of Porto San Giorgio, in a place that we call “Lu fossu de la Carogna”. It is a pure dialect expression and it is really difficult to translate also in Italian language. Beside the obstacle to translating it, the expression is used to mean the real core of Porto San Giorgio’s people.
Coming back to tell about these two men, they put a wooden table from one side of the first balcony to the other. It was covered by a tablecloth, two plates, two glasses and ate some grilled meat together. The photo, originally posted by Simone Ricci, became viral: social media post and profiles, national and local press told this story. I also wrote this story (the photo shows the article I made for Italian newspaper Corriere Adriatico, which was published on March, 30th 2020).
