It was a normal night in Rome until the neighbors of this elderly couple were alarmed to hear heart-aching wales coming from the next door apartment.
The loneliness from a lack of visitors had also contributed to the couple’s sadness until it apparently became too much.
The Italian police officers knew they had “two lonely souls to reassure” so they politely asked if they could access their pantry – because nothing lifts the spirits like a home-cooked meal.
All while conversing amiably with the seniors, the boys in blue whipped up some buttered pasta for dinner. Even though it’s a relatively simple dish, the Facebook picture of the evening said the spaghetti contained “all their humanity” for the sad couple.
