The Town That Outlawed Death...

If you’re thinking of kicking the bucket, don’t do it in Falciano del Massico, a village of 3,700 people near Naples in southern Italy.  As a matter of fact, the mayor  has outlawed dying there.  He issued the tongue-in-cheek decree because the village has no cemetery and they’re feuding with a nearby town that has one – creating a problem about what to do with the deceased. He said people are pretty happy with the ordinance.  But “unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed.”  What can you do?
