Stefano Bozzini, an 81-year old man living in Castel San Giovanni, Italy, decided to serenade his hospitalized wife by playing a selection of her favorite songs on his accordion on the street below on Monday.

Unable to be with his wife of 47 years due to strict Covid-19 restrictions, Bozzini decided to keep her company and show his love for her by playing some of her favorite tunes as he sat on the street below her hospital room. His wife, Carla, listened from her window on the second floor of the hospital.

Bozzini’s tender display of love and devotion to his wife, who is ill with Covid-19, touched people across the world after the video of him playing went viral across the world. Many social media users heralded Bozzini, a retired member of the “Alpini” mountain infantry of the Italian Army, as a true gentleman, and the perfect husband.

Bozzini’s daughter commented on the now-viral video, stating “That’s my daddy… the one and only.”
