Death, taxes and an overused Braves bullpen are inevitable, but don’t tell that to Italian Mayor Giulio Cesare Fava, who, due to his tiny town not having a cemetery, has outlawed dying.
The Associated Press reports the city of Falciano del Massico, located near Naples in southern Italy, adopted its no-death ordinance this month.
Death would be legalized, it is presumed, if the city can end its feud with nearby Carinola, which, according to this article in a language I cannot read, no longer wants to inter out-of-towners in its overcrowded cemetery.
The towns, it seems, have been feuding since the 1960s, when Falciano del Massico broke away from Carinola, perhaps in some sort of pizza crust thickness dispute.
“The ordinance has brought happiness,” said Mayor Fava, who, as a doctor, has long held an anti-death position. “Unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed.”
