每日跟讀#740: Sicilian town gives away homes, cash to attract foreign families

一個義大利小鎮非常渴望吸引新居民,因此免費提供房屋。

An Italian town is so desperate to attract new residents that it is giving houses away for free.

這些房屋位於Cammarata的山腰社區,享有埃特納火山(Mount Etna)一覽無餘的景緻,並在地中

海西西里島上享有美麗的日落。

The houses are located in the mountainside community of Cammarata which boasts sweeping views of Mount Etna and gorgeous sunsets on the Mediterranean island of Sicily.

卡馬拉塔(Cammarata)歷史悠久,但人口減少,導致許多建築物空置。

Cammarata is rich in history but its dwindling population has resulted in many buildings sitting empty.

在此情況下,市長Vincenzo Giambrone發起了一項雄心勃勃的計劃,以挽救他的故鄉及其歷史。

Against this backdrop, Mayor Vincenzo Giambrone has launched an ambitious scheme to save his hometown and its historic center.

市長說服被擁有被遺棄的家庭住宅所有者將倒塌的房屋的鑰匙交給政府且願意修復它們,並吸引的新居民。

The mayor is convincing owners of abandoned family homes to hand over the keys to the crumbling buildings to new residents who are willing to fix them up and put down roots.

您可以做什麼來獲得免費住房?您必須提交翻新計劃,支付5,000歐元(新台幣170,025元)的押金,並同意在三年內翻新該物業。

What can you do to get a free house? You must submit a refurbishment proposal, pay a 5,000 euro (NT$170,025) deposit and agree to renovate the property within three years.

還有呢?裝修完成並將建築物變成家庭住所諸如民宿,商店或餐廳之類的企業後,押金將退還。

What’s more? The deposit will be returned once the renovations are complete and the building is turned into a family home or a business such as a B&B, shop or restaurant.

當局還說,優先考慮有孩子的年輕夫婦。搬入後有孩子的夫婦將獲得現金獎勵。

Authorities also said that priority is being given to young couples with children. Couples who have a baby after moving in will be given a cash bonus.
