The 1 euro houses continue to depopulate: even Leonforte, in Sicily, now joins the dozens of Italian municipalities that sell houses (abandoned, dilapidated or often simply uninhabited and needy) at a symbolic price.

It is perhaps no coincidence that Leonforte is in Sicily: this is the region where the 1 euro house project was born and from here it spread throughout Italy, up to the Aosta Valley.

The mayor of Leonforte, as reported by the newspaper Qds.it, said that “the initiative of the Enna municipality has as its main objective that of enhancing the historic center, avoiding the abandonment of older houses, redeveloping them completely, counteracting depopulation” .

Of course, those who buy the houses will also have to formally commit to renovating them: it is part of the contract by which the 1 euro houses are sold. It always works like this: you get a house almost for free, but you save it from abandonment.

And what does the municipality gain? You might be wondering. Simple: without taking out even half a euro, you can find the historic center, or a street, or a fraction of it, which has been renovated. Not only that: alive again, inhabited, with construction sites and works in progress. Of course, the entire community profits at the end of the fair: the renovations are done by local workers and professionals, the furniture and materials are bought on the spot and so the economy revives.

Leonforte, which is located in the province of Enna, has a beautiful and enviable territory, with a quiet and perfect lifestyle for those who want to leave the city. It is therefore no coincidence that, as Qds.it always reports “There have been many requests since the first day, also meeting the favor of non-Sicilian and often non-Italian citizens”. In short, those interested must contact the municipality, and possibly do it quickly.
