On September 1st, the Piedmont Region has published an announcement with which it intends to encourage those who want to change their lives by moving to a country nestled in its mountains. For those who want to live in the mountains this could be a good opportunity to move.

Living in the mountains: Opportunities for those who want to move

The President of the Piedmont Region Alberto Cirio appears optimistic about the success of the initiative. In fact, he recently explained to the media that:

“After two years of pandemic, this idea of fresh air, clean air, the possibility for those who wish to live in contact with nature, are values on which to invest for our future and for that of our extraordinary mountains”.

The initiative aims to support the revitalization and repopulation of mountain areas, as a result of the growing social needs caused by the current health emergency. Applications can be submitted on a special platform from November 2nd to December 15th, 2021.

The call allocates 10 million euros to allow those who reside in an Italian municipality not mountainous. The call intends to buy or recover a property to be made a first home, transferring your residence, to obtain a contribution from 10,000 to 40,000 euros. This applies to countries with less than 5,000 inhabitants.

Those born since 1955 will be able to submit the application. Those born after 1980 will receive a higher score.
