Italian town trying to oust a royal ghost

Asti is plagued by a former ruler
The charming small town of Asti, Italy has a problem: it's being haunted by the ghost of King Umberto II of Savoy.
 
The ghost has appeared at least four times since 2011. Most recently, a city employee had a conversation with the king's ghost in a City Hall office. The ghost has also been sighted in other offices around City Hall, and in the plaza outside.
