Death Café

Italy already has a cat café and now a coffee shop where people can chat about dying over their cappuccino is set to open in Bologna.

Death is a subject most people try and avoid, but it is a conversation starter that has helped the Death Café concept flourish across the world since the idea was born in 2011.

Death Café is a place “where people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink coffee and discuss death.” And such a venue has opened in Bologna.

The aim is to “increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives,” according to Deathcafé.com.

Italy already has a number of ‘pop up’ Death Cafés, including those in Rome, Verona and Parma. More than 2,400 have been set up across the world.
