If you have romantically fantasized about been buried under a tree (people fantasize about that too, right?), italian project Capsula Mundi will push it up a notch. Picture it: an egg shaped container in which your dead body is put in a fetal position. Capsula Mundi is planted like a seed in the soil, and a tree is planted on top of it. The tree is chosen when you are alive and looked after by relatives after burial. Cemeteries will become forests and so the world will be a much greener place. Right?
