Agnone, a town located in the central Appennini mountains, was hit by a heavy snowfall, Saturday, as temperatures dropped to -6 degrees centigrade.
Few people left their houses as streets and sidewalks were nearly impassable, and many shops remained closed. Cars and trees seemed to disappear under big white piles, and the phoneboxes along the way were filled with snow.
A strong wind blew over the town, making some Christmas lights dangerously wave on their wires and moving the snow around.
Temperatures will remain low and snow will keep falling until Monday.
