Not so long ago, the public shook the news that the authorities of the Italian town of Sambuca, located on the southern island of Sicily, in order to restore the commune decided to sell empty houses for € 1. The proposed option was used by hundreds of enterprising people from all over the world and as a result, the buildings dispersed like hot cakes.

In addition, for the acquisition of these properties are ready to provide a residence permit to those buyers who really need it, indicated on the portal of foreign real estate Prian.ru.
