The ashes of Italian businessman Renato Bialetti, who died last week at 93 in Switzerland, were placed in a replica of the Moka pot espresso maker that his father Alfonso invented in 1933, per his wishes, the Associated Press reports. This Feb. 16 photo shows a scene from the burial service at the church of Casale Corte Cerro in the northern Italian village of Montebuglio where he was born. Bialetti is credited with successfully marketing the brand worldwide with the image of the mustachioed man that appears on the pots.
La Stampa posted a video version of the mass.
