Welcome To Your New Home – In Molise!
This seems to be a trend – beautiful but underpopulated regions around the world are offering $$$ to move there!
The Guardian has the latest example: an underpopulated region in southern Italy is offering newcomers €700 per month for three years to live in one of its villages!
Molise is a gorgeous area on the Adriatic Sea, situated next to the more well known area of Abruzzi – and they want you to live there!
There a number of small towns in the region that are making this offer.
As The Guardian reports:
There are a few catches, however: the village must have fewer than 2,000 residents, and the newcomer must pledge to open a business.
“If we had offered funding, it would have been yet another charity gesture,” Donato Toma, the president of Molise, told the Guardian. “We wanted to do more; we wanted people to invest here. They can open any sort of activity: a bread shop, a stationery shop, a restaurant, anything. It’s a way to breathe life into our towns while also increasing the population.”
Oh, and it’s only 400 miles south of Venice, so imagine popping up there on weekends to see this!
Yes, less than six hours away from one of the most spectacularly beautiful cities in the world!

So why is the region so eager for new residents? The Guardian explains:
According to the Italian National Institute of Statistics (Istat), Molise, with a population of 305,000, is among the regions that has lost more inhabitants in recent years – in excess of 9,000 have left since 2014.
The statistics are sobering:
In 2018, more than 2,800 inhabitants died or moved to another area, almost 1,000 more than the previous year. Not a single birth was registered in nine of its towns.
So, if you want to start a business and get paid to do so, consider this gorgeous region – here’s the entire story at “the guardian.com”:
As I said, this is a trend – recently I told you that an area outside Paris was doing the same thing:
