Italians Dine Under Candlelight Amid Energy Crisis

Remo Benzi, owner of the Hop brewery lights candles for the candlelit dinner at "Hop-Mangiare di Birra" restaurant and brewery on October 4, 2022 in Alessandria, Italy. Every Tuesday evening, since a month, the restaurant turns off the lights and lights the candles as a reaction to the high energy prices. The Italian Business Confederation estimates that nearly 120,000 companies are threatened with bankruptcy due to energy price hikes. Getty Images photo
