Recently, a video of Italian violinist Aldo Cicchini playing the famous Chinese music Butterfly Lovers on his balcony received attention on Chinese social media. The video was shot and uploaded by his Chinese neighbor.
Aldo Cicchini is a violinist of the RAI National Symphony Orchestra. After the Italian government encouraged people to go into self-isolation, Aldo played violin on his balcony in Milan every evening, attracting the attention of many neighbors.
He opened a Weibo account to thank Chinese netizens for their support. Many netizens uploaded videos of them playing a virtual joint ensemble with him.
Music has no boundaries. We hope the epidemic in Italy will end soon.
