"There are many empty homes in the historical center built before 1991 which we would like to see alive again with new residents," local councilor Alfredo Palese tells CNN. "It is a pity witnessing how our old districts full of history, wonderful architecture and art are slowly emptying."
The details of the deal are currently being finalized, Palese adds, but authorities are ready to launch applications in upcoming weeks when information will be available on the town hall website.
"We will be offering up to 30,000 euros to people willing to move here and buy one of these abandoned dwellings," he says. "The total funding will be split in two: it will go partly into buying an old home and partly into restyling it, if needed."
To qualify for the 30,000-euro incentive, buyers must take up residency in Presicce and purchase one of a selection of properties built before 1991, which have been mapped by authorities.
According to Palese, house prices start at 500 euros per square meter. Around 25,000 euros should be enough to secure a 50-square-meter dwelling in need of some repairs.
