The Italian Almanac

bald man

Italian News - June 16

Italians worried about their image are taking out insurance against going bald. The policy is open to anyone aged between 15 and 70, of either sex.

It was developed by an insurance firm and a chain of hair care clinics, which ask for an annual premiums regardless of how much or how little hair the insured has. The payout depends on the amount of hair lost between a client's first taking out insurance and their final claim.
