Inside Kate Langbroek's traditional Italian home she calls a 'prison'

"Pilar Chauncy" (2020-04-18)


Kate Langbroek's dream move to Italy has become a living nightmare for the radio host and her family.

After relocating to the historic city of Bologna last year, they've spent the past six weeks under lockdown inside their apartment during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The 54-year-old said on Wednesday she hopes her family are deported from the country so they can return to Australia, as they face more time in isolation.

Until they do manage to leave Italy, Kate, her husband Peter Allen Lewis and their four children must remain inside their home, which she has compared to a 'prison'. 

'We are in a lovely prison - but still a prison. Hope no one gets shanked,' Kate joked, as the family entered their third week in quarantine in March. 

The Langbroek clan first moved into their traditional apartment in Bologna, which boasts views of the world-famous Piazza Maggiore central square, in early 2019.

As of Wednesday, Italy has had 165,155 confirmed cases of coronavirus, including 21,645 deaths. So far, just 38,092 people in the country have recovered. 

During their brief trips out to stock up on supplies, Kate and her husband have run into trouble with the local police, and have struggled with the language barrier.

Speaking to Fox FM's Hughsey and Ed on Wednesday, Kate said she's so frustrated with Italy's extreme coronavirus rules she hopes her family are deported.

Kate, who regularly appears on the show to give updates on her life in Bologna, recently revealed that her husband Peter, 44, had a run-in with local police for supposedly breaking lockdown rules by riding his bike. 

'[The police] held him up for 40 minutes,' Kate said of the incident. 

'They basically interrogated him and gave him a piece of paper (which he signed) even though it was in Italian, and he couldn't understand handyman it. It said he's being sued by the police,' she added.

Kate continued: ''I laughed and said: "Good, I hope they deport us. It's the only way we can get out of here!'''

The mother-of-four went on to reveal that she and Peter also had a run-in with police on Good Friday.

The couple were walking to the shops to buy Easter eggs when they were stopped by police who said they couldn't be outside together.

'I was so annoyed. I hate the one size fits all rule,' raged Kate.
