An Italian Man’s Mother-in-Law Nagged Him So Much He Faked Amnesia



Salvatore Mannino was found wandering around Edinburgh Castle in Scotland, miles from his home in a village just outside of Pisa, Italy. Police said the 52-year-old appeared to be in a confused state and suffering from memory loss. Police called his wife, Francesca Mannino, who immediately flew to Scotland to collect her husband. Salvatore's disappearance from Italy raised suspicion when concerned Italian police officers tracked his searches on his computer and discovered that he had searched “how to disappear” and “how to fake memory loss.” Eventually, the father-of-four was forced to drop his facade and admit to British police that he did it to get away from his nagging mother-in-law. "I wanted to regain my position as a husband and father as I felt my mother-in-law had taken that from me,” explained Salvatore. Italian police slapped him with charges of abandonment, but he likely faces worse from his mother-in-law, 75-year-old Sandra Bocelli (pictured left), who said she’s furious after all she’s done for her son-in-law.
