Italy has officially reopened for business. While masks are required in public places, social distancing is (supposedly) non-negotiable, and tourism is still non-existent, life is nevertheless quickly returning to normal. Perhaps too quickly?

After Tiffany’s first aperitivo in Rome since the beginning of lockdown, she’s a bit apprehensive about how carelessly many of her fellow Romans (and sometimes herself) are picking up their old habits. Will the irrepressible sociality of Italians cause a second wave of Covid cases? Have we learned anything at all or will 2+ months of quarantine have been in vain? We discuss this and more on our latest episode.
