The mood of the beginning of quarantine has accompanied us and is still the most shared with numerous cultural variations
Perhaps and without too much, perhaps we have it all over the hair of the hashtag # iorestoacasa. Used not only on social networks, but also on the main television networks, to encourage a common motto prone to avoid coronavirus infection and encourage containment. And now more than a month has passed since, on March 8 last, the whole of Italy was put into lockdown. But, despite the impossibility of going out and meeting physically, the Italians have creatively filled the free time available to them, sharing their experiences on Twitter. Guess which hashtag is currently most shared with #iorestoacasa. The campaign, born from the idea of Filippo Sensi, has met with great success on Twitter, with thousands of users relaunching the hashtag.
#iorestoacasa in music
Numerous personalities from music, entertainment and culture have relaunched the message on Twitter to encourage everyone to stay at home since the first days of the emergency.

The variations in the activities
Among the various activities tweeted by the Italians, we find in the first places the passion for books with hashtags such as #ioleggoacasa, #ioleggodacasa, #chileggenonsiferma, #iorestoacasaeleggo tweeted by bookstores, entertainment and culture figures, citizens to encourage people to dedicate part of the own time to read.
In a difficult moment, social networks help make us feel less alone. For this reason, read a few things with whoever wants to follow me! Let's start with Calvino and "Il Barone Rampante" #iorestoacasa #laculturanonsiferma #ioleggoacasa #baronirampantihttps: //t.co/Ghfz8kbDe9

But quarantine is also an excuse to occupy time with previously neglected activities, such as tidying up the home library: with the hashtag #scaffali people shared the shots of their bookstores telling how books are collected and organized.
And in the kitchen?
The cuisine was also much talked about by users on Twitter, especially with the hashtag #iocucinoacasa. Many have ventured into new recipes and even the great chefs have revealed some secrets of their preparations. So the Italians in quarantine have rediscovered the pleasure of good home cooking. In addition, on 6 April the CarbonaraDay, a traditional dish that has also been very successful on Twitter.

With the ban on practicing outdoor sports, the Italians brought the gym into the house. With the #distantimauniti and #iomiallenoacasa campaigns, the main athletes of the various Italian sports federations have invited fans to train at home.

Not to forget in culture
Culture was also at the center of the conversations of Italians, who, unable to visit exhibitions and museums, shared their virtual experiences. Among the hashtags most mentioned on Twitter are #laculturanonsiferma, #museichiusimuseiaperti and #museitaliani, which, starting from the initiatives of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and of the individual museums scattered throughout the Italian territory, have rediscovered Twitter users the value of the national artistic heritage, promoting readings and virtual visits.
physically closing does not mean giving up on spreading and sharing our assets. Despite the difficulty we will try our best to keep the DOOR OF BEAUTY open # DistantimaUniti # Montefalco # sistemamuseo # laculturanonsiferma # iorestoacasa pic.twitter.com/AbERVO7C7j
