After Coronavirus pandemic hit this year, Italy, as the first place in Europe to be hit by the epidemic, not only suffered heavy casualties, but also suffered a strong economic impact.
Therefore, in order to help the vulnerable people affected by the epidemic, the enthusiastic old Bernardinello took the initiative to place a basket in front of his shop, which was filled with bread, and a paragraph was written next to it, which read: “This is In order to help those in need, please take it yourself, but don’t forget the others.”
Not only that, according to the New York Times report, he will quickly disappear from the crowd after taking out the bread, so as not to create a psychological burden on those who need the bread but are afraid of embarrassment. A friend also revealed that although the old man Bernardinello said that the bread was left in the store, he once saw the old man put out the newly baked bread in this way.
