Wine windows reopen in Italy after centuries due to corona virus



All over Florence and Tuscany, Italy there are these kind of windows called buchetta del vino, which means "wine window".

Back in the day, Italians who owned vineyards would sell wine directly to customers through a tiny window in the wall. But in the 1630s, they got useful due to the Black Death. It was a way to sell socially distanced wine and not catch the plague.

They were a thing of the past but due to the pandemic, wine windows are being used again these days. Even diversifying to Aperol spritz, gelato and coffee windows. Being so useful that there's a cultural association called Buchette Del Vino that marks them all out and gives information about them.
