When will Italy reopen—and what will that reopening entail?

These are the questions that Italy's residents have been asking themselves constantly lately. Rumor has it, Italy's country-wide lockdown will come to an end on May 4th, although this is not official yet. Hypotheses abound and no one really knows what to expect. Although one thing is for certain: this is only Phase Two. This crisis is far from over and social distancing and some restrictions of movement will likely go on for the foreseeable future.

But we all want to know: once we start phase two, will life return (somewhat) to normal? Will coffee bars and restaurants reopen? Will we be able to go to parks again? What about the beach once summer hits in just a few months?

We discuss this and more on this week's episode.
