Dozens of empty stands with no one, no noise, no smell of fish and meat: the people of Turin have a hard time getting used to the atmosphere of confinement. “We're more than sad, it's like a traumasays Roberta, a local resident. Porta Palazzo is like the heart of the city and seeing it turned off breaks our hearts. We had never seen a Saturday morning without a market in Porta Palazzo“.
In this city of 800,000 inhabitants, as in all of Italy, confinement was decreed on March 13. The authorities have left only a small part of the covered market accessible. And the containment measures were extended until mid-April.
