The mayor of a sparsely populated town in the southern Italian region of Calabria has come up with an innovative idea to bring people in and stimulate local business. Small houses in need of restoration are on offer for as little as 5000 Euro and the hope is that this kind of bargain will boost the population at the same time as providing work in the area for builders and encouraging the launch of new businesses like bars and shops.
While the region may not be well known to prospective foreign buyers it has a lot to offer as a potential tourist destination and the mayor is determined to spread the message as widely as possible.
