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!"
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!"
