Vila de Presicce is looking for new residents; City Hall is willing to reward people financially so that they can buy houses and renovate
Cities in Italy are offering money for people to move there
The Village of Presicce, in Italy, is willing to pay up to 30,000 euros (about R$167,000 at current exchange rates) for anyone who wants to move there. Interested in attracting new residents, the city hall made itself available to pay people to move to the region, buy a property and settle down. Despite being a beautiful place, and known as the “city of green gold”, the village of Presicce is hostage to a problem that affects some regions of the Europe: low birth rate and abandonment of the region. To participate in this program, there are some requirements that need to be followed, such as the need to become a resident of Presicce, and the purchase of a house that was built before 1991. In the amount that will be raised, the new inhabitant must divide a part for the purchase and another for the reform. In the coming weeks, the village council is expected to publish more information on its website along with the applications. This is another one of the Italian cities that offers money in the form of a reward for people who move there. In August, the government of the island of Sardinia approved a program that transfers €15,000 (about R$75,700 at current exchange rates) to anyone moving to the region. Presicce is a village from the Middle Ages and has nine thousand inhabitants. In 2019, it joined with Acquariaca, a neighboring town, which enabled more public funds for the region.
