Deaths barred in Italian village
Mayor of small Italian village forbids his citizens from dying because it has no cemetery
By The Associated Press

ROME (AP) ' Since the start of the month it has been illegal to die in Falciano del Massico, a village of 3,700 people some 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Naples in southern Italy.

Mayor Giulio Cesare Fava issued the tongue-in-cheek decree because the village has no cemetery and it is feuding with a nearby town that has one ' creating a logistical problem about what to do with the deceased.

The mayor told newspapers that villagers are content.



"The ordinance has brought happiness," he was quoted Tuesday as saying. "Unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed."
