Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Looks like Italy, traditionally distrustful of government, is mostly green. Sicily is just off the map so I can't see.   Here in the USA, the Archbishops of Chicago and New York (perhaps others) took the unprecedented step of cancelling Mass. In Chicago, a cooperating TV station broadcast the Archbishop's congregation-less Mass every Sunday. I'm guessing parishioners were urged to mail in donations. Still. Unprecedented. Various right-wing Protestant denominations held services in defiance of orders and tied up the court's with Constitutional appeals. Main-line Protestants cooperated.

Perhaps the Vatican told the Italian people to get their shots. I never heard the the two American archbishops were considered heretics.
