Italy’s famed $1 homes are back on the market.
In 2019, several small Italian towns put up their abandoned homes for just $1 in an effort to lure more residents in and to rebuild the communities. In places like Ollolai and Binovia, would-be Italians could scoop up homes for $1, and the town of Bivona in Sicily offered its homes for $1 down and a $2,750 bond.
“Despite so many empty buildings, Bivona’s old center is still vibrant, packed with history and very welcoming,” Angela Cannizzaro, Bivona’s culture councilor, told CNN at the time. “We need to breathe new life into it.”
