Giovanni Carilli and Giampiero Nobili are the only two residents in their small Italian town — but they're still taking the dangers of the coronavirus pandemic seriously. The elderly pair live in Nortosce, a town in Umbria that is difficult to get in and out of, which means Carilli, 82, and Nobili, 74, are often the only ones in the town. Despite the remoteness, they're still adhering to Italy's coronavirus guidelines

They make sure they're always standing at least 6 feet apart. When they get together for espresso, they sit on opposite ends of a 6-foot table.
