Sicily: Patron pays €50 for a coffee and refuses change

In recent hours Italy continued to ease measures in connection with Covid-19. After weeks of quarantine with empty roads and many establishments closed to the public, Italy has come up for air. Today, restaurants and bars are open.

For Italians, coffee in the mornings is sacred. Which is why in recent weeks many were not thrilled at the fact that they could not have a coffee at one of the local bars.

Yesterday, as the bars reopened their doors, many flocked to have their first coffee after many days locked up at home.

A stone’s throw away, in Marsala Sicily, a regular customer of one of the bars paid with a €50 Euro note and told the cashier to keep the chance. Given that the bars have been closed for 50 days, he said he wanted to pay as much as he would have if he were buying a coffee every day.
