The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the hospitality sector, especially the small and traditional businesses such as cafes, restaurants and bars. Many of these businesses have been forced to close or reduce their operations due to lockdowns, social distancing measures and reduced customer demand. Many of these businesses have also faced challenges in adapting to the new digital economy, such as online ordering, delivery, payment and marketing.

According to the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT), the turnover of the hospitality sector decreased by 38.9% in 2020 compared to 2019. The number of employees in the sector also decreased by 8.4% in 2020 compared to 2019.

## The specialty of the cafe is associated with social impact


One of the businesses that has been affected by the pandemic is Caffè della Pace, a traditional cafe located in Rome. Caffè della Pace is not only a place where customers can enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry, but also a place where they can experience the culture and history of Rome. Caffè della Pace was founded in 1891 and has been frequented by many famous artists, writers and intellectuals over the years. Caffè della Pace is also a place where customers can support social causes, as the cafe donates part of its profits to local charities and NGOs.

Caffè della Pace's specialty is associated with social impact, as it aims to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of Rome, as well as to contribute to the well-being of its community.
