Italian village offering to pay people to move there

The mayor of a quiet mountain village in Italy is proposing to offer people 2,000 Euros (£1,700) to move there and the rent there is just £40 a month.

The major, Daniele Galliano, had the idea to attract new blood to the village which is in danger of becoming a ghost town.

However, the village of Bormida isn’t exactly a tourist destination as it is situated in the mountainous Liguria region with only 394 people living there and the nearest city being Genoa, 50 miles away.

Galliano says that at the moment the idea is just a proposal, saying, “The plan must be approved by the municipal council first.”

The post on Facebook has led to dozens people offering to move from around the world in places such as Britain, America, Hungary and Indonesia.
