In a tear-jerking act of kindness, the Mayor of the city of este, Ferrara, Italy, the Honorable Alan Fabbri, personally went to the cemetery with a Bugler, to assure SOMEONE -- anyone -- was there to lay the dead to rest in a dignified manner.
As the Italian Army convoy arrived in the Cemetery, the Mayor held up his hand to pause the trucks. A bugler then played what seems to be the Italian version of "Taps" and then what seemed to be the religious song "Bringing in the sheaths."
With that, the Mayor signaled the trucks to proceed and they did.
None of these dead could have an actual "funeral." Such mass gatherings are banned due to the coronavirus spread. Yet, in spite of the present disease hardship, this Mayor took it upon himself, to be there as the dead were laid to rest. Very classy.
