Turin: A small town in the Italian city of Turin has heard the cry of a baby after almost a gap of 30 years. The residents of the Ostana community residing in the Italian city breathed a sigh of relief when Little Pablo was born.

According to reports, Little Pablo is the first baby to be born since 1987 and was welcomed into the community.

 

Little Pablo was born to parents Jose and Silvia in a hospital in Turin last week.

Giacomo Lombardo, the mayor of the city described Little Pablo’s birth as a ‘dream come true’ for the tiny town consisting of merely 85 people.

"The real decline started in 1975, with 17 babies between 1976 and 1987, when the last boy was born - until little Pablo,” Lombardo told La Stampa newspaper.

Ostana, which lies near the mountains of the Piedmont region, has witnessed a drastic decline in its population over the past 100 years. With little Pablo’s arrival, the community now has a total of 85 members.
