I have heard of many different caskets and funerals, but this is a first. After Renato Bialetti, 93, died last week his children decided to honor his life’s work by placing his ashes in a container that symbolized his family’s legacy. During a funeral service in Montebuglio, Italy Bialleti’s ashes were buried in a replica of the Moka coffee pot, which his father, Alfonso, invented.
Bialetti’s three children Alfonso, Antonella and Alessandra reportedly, came up with the idea to bury their father in the octagonal coffee pot he dedicated his life to popularizing.
I guess being famous for coffee does have some perks.
