Mum-in-law is mem­o­rable

The Weekend Post - - World -

A TOURIST who said he had lost his mem­ory has ad­mit­ted fak­ing am­ne­sia to es­cape his nag­ging mother-in-law.

Sal­va­tore Man­nino, 52, was dis­cov­ered wan­der­ing around St Giles Cathe­dral in Ed­in­burgh on Septem­ber 20 with no iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and ap­par­ently no clue who he was.

It took po­lice two weeks to iden­tify the Ital­ian. When his wife flew to see him, Mr Man­nino claimed not to know her.

Now back home in Pisa, the fa­ther-of-four is said to have con­fessed it was all an elab­o­rate lie. “I did it to get away from my nag­ging mother-in­law,” Mr Man­nino re­port­edly told Ital­ian po­lice.
