Many small Italian towns are slowly emptying and as a solution, their mayors have been offering some of the historical homes at only 1 euro. Due to the lack of job and opportunities, the youngest, professionals and even families have been often moving to the biggest cities, both in Italy and abroad.
The proposal has a twofold function: the revival of the local economy and the population of these small towns. This initiative has been embraced by several towns located in different parts of Italy: from Piedmont to Calabria, from to Sicily to Sardinia.
Along with the buying of the building, the council may provide some obligations related to the purchase, such as the duty to renovate the house.
The advantages of the proposal are many. Firstly, the opportunity to revive entire areas which are now abandoned giving a vibrant atmosphere to these towns.
