italians send powerful messages sharing what they wish they’d known 10 days ago

italian residents have filmed powerful messages to their past selves sharing what they wish they’d known 10 days ago and hoping the rest of the world will learn from them.

 

‘I’m speaking to you from the future,’ says the video as italian residents are confined to their homes trying to slow the spread of COVID-19. as the emergency has been declared a pandemic, italians  want to warn the world that if they don’t react fast, things might get out of hand. it is believed that nations like the US, britain, france, spain and germany are about 9-19 days behind italy in the pandemic progression.

created by a thing by (olmo parenti, cosimo quartana, giacomo ostini, marco zannoni, arturo vicario), the video’s aim is to spread consciousness instead of panic. the testimonies include that of a young man who says ‘this isn’t all bullshit like you thought,’ followed by a woman wearing a face mask, admitting she used to make fun of others using it. ‘the worst-case scenario? that’s exactly what will happen.’

‘this has been a humbling experience,’ parenti said to the atlantic. ‘but the cool thing about mistakes is that you can learn from other people’s — so learn from ours and don’t underestimate this.’
