In Italy, which was the epicenter of the coronavirus in Europe, people said goodbye to those who've lost their lives to COVID-19 at a ceremony in the province of Bergamo. A live orchestra played the unfinished Requiem funeral Mass by Gaetano Donizetti, a Bergamo native and one of Italy’s most important 19th-century composers. Host Marco Werman has the story.
