Italy: Authorities respond to capsized boat on Lake Maggiore
A teacher saw his employment terminated after 20 years, after he was “spotted on the beach” despite being signed off due to sickness.
Italian Cinzio Paolina De Lio had spent 24 years as a teacher, employed to teach literature and philosophy.
However she actually only spent four years of that time in the classroom.
Astonishingly, De Lio, 56, was able to spend the remainder of that time away from school, on sick leave, using holidays, and being permitted to attend conferences.

Her case was heard in the Italian court, and brief De Lio won her job back. But it soon emerged her working true working habits, forcing the court into a u-turn.
The Italian Supreme Court said De Lio was “permanently and absolutely unsuitable” despite a claim she made that she had three degrees.
She was also branded the “worst employee in Italy” by the school near Venice.
The ex-teacher was then approached by journalists after being “spotted on the beach”.
When asked for a comment, De Lio refused.
