I think it’s time to move to Italy.
Yes. You’ve read it right. Italy is asking people to move to their beautiful villages and will pay you 1.6 million Pesos.
I don’t know about you but this is way more than a win. The Southern Italian village of Calabria needs people to live there to reverse population decline, a program known as the “Active Residency Income Project.”
Now, that’s a very generous offer just for existing.
And the place is not even shabby, you can live your aesthetic life like the beauty of Italy is nothing but elegance and light and you can binge all the pasta, gelato and other Italian food that you like.
- Anyone under the age of 40
- Commits to starting a local business or work professionally
- Willing to move to Calabria in southern Italy in 90 days after approval of application.
Said to be an experiment of social inclusion, immigrants are also tasked with boosting the local economy. Also, these villages were asked what type of professionals they’re missing to attract specific workers to move there.
This program aims to draw people to live in the region and revamp Italy’s south wherein the demand for jobs meets supply.
“The goal is to boost the local economy and breathe new life into small-scale communities,” – Gianluca Gallo, a regional councilor.
The program will be open for applications soon so ready yourself and pack up your life for the adventure of a lifetime in Italy. We will update this post once the official website for the application is up.
