Play • 17 min

 Writer and radio producer Sara Marinelli introduces the series by sharing some of her Letters to Italy that she has been writing since the onset of the pandemic.

 Through a collage of voice-memos, phone calls, radio news, journal entries, and music recorded on Italian balconies, Sara explores her sense of belonging and ways to connect from afar with the country she left fourteen years ago.

Since recording this episode, Italy’s vaccination plan has sped up. 13% of the population has received the anti Covid-19 vaccine, as of early May 2021.
