The return to the mountain

An incredible success for the Piedmont region! The project, launched in early September, involved a total of 465 mountain municipalities in Piedmont with less than 5,000 inhabitants. The winners received contributions ranging from € 10,000 to € 40,000. According to the data, the territories that have received the most purchase requests are:

  • the province of Turin, with 252 requests,
  • Cuneo with 126,
  • Biella with 71,
  • Alessandria with 44,
  • Verbano-Cusio-Ossola with 42,
  • Vercelli with 20,
  • Novara with 11 and
  • Asti with 5.

There is still a long way to go towards the revitalization and repopulation of some mountain municipalities but the estimates of those who are choosing the mountain as a new beginning are promising : as reported in a press release, 571 applications received the call launched by the Piedmont Region, of which 461 came from Piedmont itself, 72 from Lombardy and 23 from Liguria .
