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.
