It is now illegal to die in Falciano del Massico, a village of 3,700 people near 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 dead. He said: "The ordinance has brought happiness. Unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed."
