This Beautiful Italian Town Will Pay You $30,000 To Move There
Welcome to the dream. Another Italian town wants to pay you to move to Italy—$30,000, to be exact.
This time around, the deep-pocketed village is Presicce, a charming little hamlet that is known as the “city of green gold,” thanks to the surrounding olive groves. Presicce is set in Puglia, a southern region known for its whitewashed hill towns, lush farmland and pristine Mediterranean coastline.
The town will pay people up to 30,000 euros to buy a house and move there, which translates to about $30,000 in today’s dollars.
The idea is to attract new residents in order to combat dwindling population numbers, and it’s something that has been used in other parts of Italy. There’s the island of Sardinia (which offered $15,000), the region of Calabria (doling out $33,000) and the village of Santo Stefano di Sessanio (promising up to $52,500), just to name a few.
