The third notice concerns the free loan of the municipal dairy in Marletta Street. The municipality is willing to grant the facility and also to carry out some adjustment works. The maximum amount allowed is about 5200 euros. Livestock and dairy entrepreneurial activities in single or associated form will be eligible to apply for the commodity loan. Again, submission methods and selection criteria are specified in the notice available on the online bulletin board.

The 1 euro houses project in San Piero Patti

San Piero Patti also offers the sale and purchase of houses for the symbolic price at 1 euro. The project has brought new interest to the municipality from both foreigners and Italians interested in moving to the village.

In 2021 they made as many as 5 properties available for purchase at the symbolic price of 1 euro. Once purchased, the house must be renovated by the new owner in the time frame arranged by the municipality.
