The country has recently joined the 1 Euro Houses initiative. The goal is to enhance an urban heritage that was slowly disappearing. The idea is to put old houses for sale to be restored at a symbolic price, with the obligation – on the part of buyers – to provide for the work within a short period of time.
As indicated by the extraordinary commissioner of the municipality Francesco Fragale:

This includes the recovery of the housing function of the historic center, redeveloping the territory from an urban point of view and favoring the opening of tourist-receptive activities, shops or craft shops in a suggestive location.”
Our team hopes that this project will also bring good results, like so many similar projects in the Sicilian region. For those interested in buying a house for 1 euro, Calatafimi Segesta is a good opportunity. The project is open to both Italian and foreign citizens.
