Corrando Tomassini, 49, and his wife Rosanna Maserati, 49, work from home following the Italian authorities decision to close schools and universities as well as urging people to work from home as a protective measure to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in Milan, Italy. "I had never experienced this kind of continuative smart working before. Even if my company launched the smart working programme several years ago, I never took advantage of it because I found it easier to go to the office, which is close to where I live. Working everyday from home has complicated things but it has also improved the quality of life," said Tomassini. (Image: Reuters)

Alessia Mauri, 34, who is a dance teacher, records a lesson to send to her students, while gyms are closed as a protective measure during the the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, in Milan, Italy. "I thought it would be interesting to give them some specific dance lessons. Not like the ones I am seeing being live streamed publicly on Instagram. I think it's much more constructive for my girls to have a video of a teacher who gives them a dedicated lesson they can have at home and help them keep on training," said Mauri. (Image: Reuters)
