Firefighters with the Como fire brigade arrived at her house after complaints that a tree had fallen in her garden as a result of overgrown vegetation.

During an interview with CNN, Francesca Manfredi, the press officer for the Como City Hall, said that they discovered the body of Beretta inside her house. 

The authorities said that she was found sitting in a chair inside her living room. 

The authorities did not reveal the cause of Baretta’s death.

According to the medical examiner who examined the 70-year-old woman, they said that the woman passed away sometime towards the end of 2019 because of the extent of her body’s decomposition.

The police found nothing at the scene that would indicate that foul play was involved in her death. 

The discovery of Beretta has resulted in calls for better care for the elderly population in the country.

The family and equal opportunities minister Elena Bonetti said that her forgotten loneliness hurts conscienses. 

In a post that was made on Facebook, Minister Bonetti said:

Remembering her life is the duty of a community that wants to stick together… Taking care of each other is the experience of families, institutions, and our citizens. No one has to be left alone.

Mario Landriscina, the mayor of Como, invited local residents to attend the funeral of Beretta.

In a statement that they released about the woman, he said:

It is a tragedy that occurred in a context complicated by the pandemic, from a closed and isolated city. Who knows how much this woman suffered. Now is the time to give witness and I invite the city to be present. This is the moment to be together, and even if this woman had no relatives, we could become her relatives.

The local authorities are yet to set a date for the funeral.

The mayor did assure that the government is going to take care of the arrangements and that he would try to be there. 

Right now, no family members have come forward following the discovery of Beratta’s dead body. 

The authorities are now trying to locate her relatives. 

According to multiple reports, her body is currently at the morgue. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Beretta, may her soul rest in peace.
