Italians may eat and drink indoors at bars and restaurants for the first time in months and that includes the morning ritual of having an espresso or cappuccino at a local cafe. Until Tuesday, businesses had to either offer outdoor seating, or serve coffee in takeaway cups, admonishing customers to step away from the bar before sipping or run afoul of virus restrictions. Rome resident Paolo Leoni enjoyed an espresso at the Toraldo Cafe in the centre of Rome. He said that “one coffee gives us the feeling of living serenely again.” Cafe owner Alessandro Rappini says that seeing the place fill up again after four months “gives me a huge sense of satisfaction.” Italy began rolling back pandemic restrictions in April as the number of new cases showed signs of steady decline. To date, nearly 35 million people in the country of 60 million residents have received at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine.
