The recently appointed mayor, Vittorio Sgarbi, of Salemi under the guidance of his cultural executive, Oliviera Toscani have decided to bring back to life the historic centre of Salemi by giving away the houses.
The historic town centre which locals abandoned after an earthquake in 1968 is in need of drastic restoration. The mayor has decided that giving away the houses under the condition to restore them in accordance with local building regulations is the solution to regenerating the area.
International celebrities including the owner of Inter football club, Massimo Moretti , along with rumours of Peter Gabriel and Lucio Dalla are among some of the interested parties.
You too can become a part of this new celebrity hotspot and innovative regeneration project !!!
We will write a letter of interest on your behalf to the local council administration. It is not yet sure how the houses will be allocated, but the local council say that within a month further news on allocation will be divulged to those who have expressed an interest.
If you are allocated an Italian property the following conditions will apply ;
- Purchase the house from the council for a nominal fee, 1 Euro !!!.
- Restore the house according to local planning & building regulations.
- Use local Italian builders.
- Complete restoration within a 2 year deadline.
