Death is illegal

venice

In Venice, Italy, it has been illegal to die since 1173. I’m very curious how would they exactly punish the people who break the law?
May you think it’s just an ancient law that few people know. But since Mar 2012, it also had been illegal to die in Falciano del Massico, a village of 3,700 people in southern Italy. The mayor explained the absurd law: the village has no cemetery and they have no way to do.
“The decree has brought happiness,” the mayor said “Unfortunately, two elderly citizens disobeyed.”
