Google the headline and pick it up from the search results to bypass the paywall the direct link throws up.

It's perfectly legit - they let you read a few articles a month that way.

Things have been well organised in Umbria. Our Coop is still giving tickets for entry and everyone is wearing gloves and masks or at least cleaning their hands at the door. My partner has been to day hospital in Perugia and she was Covid tested at the entrance.
The main problem is the economic hit with quite a few local businesses in trouble.
I dont think anything would have been much better in the UK.

You're welcome.

It's "archive.fo". "archive.org" is a different site.

This is a bit more positive from the Telegraph with a woman moving to Catania.
