In answer to Greyling from Redmond, WA who asked the following questions:

Briefly in answer to your questions:

On average, how large are these homes – how many square metres each?

They are currently ruins and need completly rebuilding, average size will be from 70 -100sqm

Is it possible to choose property with the best view, easiest street access, least damage or other attributes?

Allocation details have not yet been released, there are rumours of auctions, preference to cultural/artistic applicants and people who will live here…the objective is to have a buzzing community not a ghost town.

Can the purchaser get a written guarantee of the “thousand euros per square metre” repair pricing?

Building contracts come with price guarantees. The final price is to be determined obviously.

What rules are in place to prevent price gouging from local builders?

The council may appoint large contractors on fixed prices.

What, if any, is the penalty for failure to complete restoration within the two-year limit?

This is more a commitment to complete rather than a deadline. The council don’t want people sitting on land and not completing the restoration.

Is it possible for me, a U.S. citizen, to fully own such a house?

Yes US citizens can fully owna house in Italy. No problem.

If so, how does ownership affect my visa and/or immigration status in Sicily?

Best to ask your consulate that 1.

Would I be able to live in my Salemi home for extended periods, or would I be subject to regular visitor status regardless of owning Sicilian property?

Yes the council want people to live here. Re visas ask consulate.

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.
  • Estimated budget of restoration is 1000 euros per square metre, in Sicily.
  • MIPC will project manage the restoration of the Italian house on your behalf.

Salemi is 72km south west of Palermo and 35km south east of Marsala.

British Airways, Ryanair, easyJet and Air Malta all have direct flights to Sicily. Ryanair flies from Stansted to Palermo and less frequently from Luton and Birmingham to Trapani; EasyJet from Gatwick to Palermo.

With 12 months of sun and breathtaking views across the hills to the Mediterranean Sea, this is your chance to own an historic part of Sicily, Southern Italy and enjoy the Italian culture in your Italian holiday home.

To help reassure you that this is not a scam of any sort, I have personally spoke with the council of Salemi and this news has been documented both in The Times and The Guardian.

If you are interested please email David Moss for further details.
