Civitella Alfedena - A place with no children - The mayor says birth rate is minimal also in other park areas / Un paese senza bimbi - Il sindaco Massimi: «Natalità bassissima anche in altre realtà del Parco» - by Cristina Notarantonio
Only two babies born in four years, while ten deaths were recorded in 1999. Of the 300 inhabitants 120 are elderly. But the mayor is not pessimistic: a lot of tourists are buying houses and establishing residence. The birth rate decrease has hit heavily all the centres in the National Park, with the only exceptions of Pescasseroli, Castel di Sangro and Pescocostanzo.
