    Default Tempted?

    Underpopulated Italian region offers visitors €25,000 to move in (Guardian)

    An underpopulated region in southern Italy is offering newcomers €700 per month for three years to live in one of its villages.

    There are a few catches, however: the village must have fewer than 2,000 residents, and the newcomer must pledge to open a business.

    “If we had offered funding, it would have been yet another charity gesture,” Donato Toma, the president of Molise, told the Guardian. “We wanted to do more; we wanted people to invest here.
    They can open any sort of activity: a bread shop, a stationery shop, a restaurant, anything. It’s a way to breathe life into our towns while also increasing the population.”
    Emphasis mine. Apparently Italians don't live by bread alone — they also need fountain pens.

    A good initiative. Although I know well enough how it'll end.

    If I was young and healthy I would seriously consider it.
