ROME — The ancient capital city of Italy is decked-out for the holidays. Lights and decorations are hung everywhere, but in one of the most majestic locations imaginable, stands a rather pathetic centerpiece.

CBS News correspondent Seth Doane reports that Romans, who have a knack for giving a good nickname, have dubbed it, "spelacchio." In Italian, that means "mangy," "thread bear" or "balding." But there the city's Christmas tree stands — barely — looking a little like something the neighbors should've taken down weeks ago.

Tomaso Stegagno said it's indicative of some of Italy's underlying problems.  "I think that it's dead and it's very sad … A sad tree."

The problem is, Stegagno says, "it's worldwide now … Everybody knows."

Spelacchio has been ridiculed here and bullied online. One internet user likened it to a toilet brush. Now the tree has a Twitter account: @spelacchio, with almost 5,000 followers.

When compared with trees in, say, Washington, D.C., or New York City, it is a tad reminiscent of the iconic subpar tree on the "Charlie Brown Christmas" special.

As if to rub it in, just down the street the Vatican has a spectacular tree in front of St. Peter's Basilica.

Fabrizio Depascale, meanwhile, felt such pity that he brought a bouquet of flowers to lay by poor spelacchio. It was like coming to a cemetery, he said.

James Franco is a Hallmark Christmas movie star in cut SNL spoof

  James Franco is a Hallmark Christmas movie star in cut SNL spoof It’s just as Cecily Strong says, Christmas season is like the Super Bowl for the Hallmark channel. In a sketch cut for time from James Franco’s latest episode of Saturday Night Live, the star of The Disaster Artist spoofs all those Hallmark Christmas movies as Chris Bearstick, a Canadian actor forced to star in such films like Yes, Santa (about a young Santa Claus falling in love with a woman who’s boyfriend works too much) and Prince Santa (about an ice skater who gets amnesia and ends up marrying a prince who’s also young Santa). “It’s quantity over quality, people, and we are just blasting your ass with these,” Strong says in voiceover. It’s funny ’cause these fake titles and premises aren’t that far off from actual Hallmark Christmas movies, such as A Christmas Prince (an actual Hallmark movie), With Love, Christmas (another real-life Hallmark movie), and Switched for Christmas (you get the idea).

A scene from ”A Charlie Brown Christmas .”ABC. NOTEWORTHY. It provides a downbeat counterpoint to a special that begins in a sadder register than most child-focused entertainment, with the eternal sad sack Charlie Brown feeling depressed over the coming holidays.

"Perhaps something go wrong, on the transportation, or because there is no … there is no explanation possible."

The city of Rome paid more than $55,000 for the tree's delivery and disposal, and officially hasn't said anything about the controversy.

Still, some see an elegance to it, with its 600 adorning silver balls.

A mother and daughter from Australia were surprised to learn of all the fuss.

"Maybe Romans love to be passionate about most things, and that's just another thing to be passionate about?" quipped the mother.

Was it abused? Was it poisoned? Social media users are demanding answers — and calling for a "funeral" for the spelacchio. One individual suggested burying it at the Pantheon, next to Italy's king.
