Italians show you how to wear a mask in the heat

How do you wear your mask?

Italians are finding funky ways

to hold their masks in hot weather

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) ROME RESIDENT, MARIALUISA (HOLDING MASK):

"I always wear it (the mask) but now I've taken it off because it felt like a sauna underneath it. I just need some fresh air and then I'll put it on again!"

Location: Rome

Face coverings must be worn indoors

but are not compulsory outside

Some people place them under their chin

others hang them off the ears

or even from their elbow

(SOUNDBITE) (Italian) ROME RESIDENT, SALVATORE MAZZOTTA, SAYING (HOLDING MASK):

"For me, it's (mask) useless, but I will wear it because we have to obey the rules. I have it (shows mask) and I will wear it when possible when I can breathe!"
