With Europe in the midst of an icy grip, the Italian town of Agnone, located in the central Appennini mountains, was almost paralyzed. Few people braved the outdoors as streets and sidewalks were almost impassable while many shops remained shut. Cars and trees seemed to disappear under big white piles, and the phone boxes along the way were almost fully covered in snow.
