How to look up recent obits in Rome?

Post by LinJ47 » 12 Feb 2010, 20:52

Can anyone tell me how to find a recent obit in Rome? A cousin contacted me who needs an obit of a 90+ yr old gentleman named Antonio Capone, address Via Ottone Rosai, 9-00125 Acilia - Roma who died in the middle of or the third week of Jan 2010. She gave me the name of his parents and his 2 living sons but I know nothing of Italian newspapers. I tried to surf "la Repubblica" but got lost very quickly. Any suggestions?

Unless the man was an important person in the town (like the Mayor) it is unlikely there was a published obituary.
Most Italians are buried within 24 - 48 hours after death.
