In Italy, one's final resting place in a cemetery is not considered to be forever. Modern Italian contracts for a cemetery space generally last from 30 to 50 years. When the contract expires and the space is needed, the physical remains are moved to a much smaller individual, familial, or communal ossuary. The emptied space is then available to be re-used.
