A combination photo of shops with signs reading "close for family reasons" (L, top and bottom) or "close for inventory" (R, bottom) and "close for a wedding" in the Chinatown district in Rome May 11, 2011. A prediction that a huge earthquake would destroy Rome on Wednesday prompted fear in some and giggles of ridicule in others as officials reassured the populace that the eternal city would not be rubble by midnight. One neighbourhood that came down with a bad case of earthquake fever was Chinatown, where many shopkeepers kept stores shuttered and put up signs reading "close for inventory" or "close for serious family reasons" or "close for a wedding".
