Italians are petitioning God to stop David Bowie from being dead. 

The petition, started by Andrea Natella on change.org, was started with just a single signature and now has 820 supporters. 

The statement on her change.org petition is simple: "Letter to God. Say NO to David Bowie dead."

People have been tweeting in support of her petition and her “letter to God” is picking up worldwide support.

Ms Natella, whose favourite Bowie song is "Life on Mars", explained that she started the petition for several reasons: "It's a way to think about the way that David Bowie, like other famous people, died like a fictional character. I suppose it's also a way we can highlight how ineffective most web petitioning can be!"
