意小城禁止居民死亡 因没有墓地

意大利南部一小城的市长本月初宣布“禁止居民离开尘世,走向后世”,因为他们没有墓地了。

The mayor of a small town in southern Italy has forbidden residents to die, because there is no cemetery(墓地) for them to be buried in.

Giulio Cesare Fava, the mayor of Falciano del Massico, located about 50km north of Naples, southern Italy, issued the order earlier this month stating, "it is forbidden for residents ... to go beyond the boundaries of earthly life, to go into to the afterlife".

So far only two residents have disobeyed the edict(法令,布告) , La Stampa newspaper reported, with two recorded deaths since March 5.

The unusual order follows a dispute with a neighboring town, which has owned the old cemetery since local boundaries were redrawn in 1964.

The two communities disaGREe about a planned expansion of the site, so Mr Fava pulled out of the project and decided to build a new cemetery for Falciano del Massico's living 4000 residents.

But until he gains the right permits and builds the new final resting place, the townsfolk(市民) have been ordered to keep on living.
