It was a black Friday for Italy, with four people in a row killed by the crisis and the bureaucracy.

In Civitanova Marche, two spouses committed suicide together after realizing that they were unable to pay the rent of their flat.

The husband, 62-year-old, had recently lost his job and had been stripped of his right to retirement by Mr Mario Monti’s controversial reforms.

The wife, 68-year-old, did not work and was entitled to a very small pension allowance.

Her brother, 72-year-old, after being informed of her death committed suicide by throwing himself into the sea.

In Palermo, a 68-year-old pensioner died for a heart attack after a stampede in the local health office, where hundreds of people had been queuing since dawn to do the paperwork necessary to get a discount on their medical fees.
