Italian Town Celebrates Birth Of First Baby In 28 Years


Good morning. I'm Mary Louise Kelly delivering sweet news from the northern Italian mountain town Ostana, where they are welcoming the first baby in 28 years. Ostana had a population of 84, until now. Baby Pablo makes 85. The newspaper La Stampa says Ostana is celebrating his birth with a party, we assume with prosecco. And they've planted a model stork at the entrance to the town holding a small blue bundle. Congratulazioni. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
