Italian mayor offers $2,200 to encourage people to live in tiny village
An Italian mayor is offering $2,200 to anyone who is willing to move to his tiny village.
The mayor of Bormida village, Daniele Galliano, offered anyone who is willing to move there a considerable amount of money.

Before the Second World War, the Italian village used to house around 1,000 people, but after war ended, the country developed and the village was left behind.
Located in the Italian mountains and boasting incredible views of the surroundings, no one could blame you if you consider moving there.

The mayor made a last attempt of getting people to move to his village, after posting videos on Facebook failed.
He hopes that the announcement he made would increase the number of inhabitants, which currently has stopped at 394.
The small Italian village had its mayor promising whoever decides to move to Bormida that he would pay new residents €2,000 ($2,200) in cash.

The announcement came amid a dwindling constituency of just 394 and in hopes that people will come if they receive money.
If the money won’t work, the mayor has another trick on his sleeve. He said he’ll lower the rent at €50 a month. However, for a spacious room, the price remains €120.
Many say they would be willing to move to the village, Alux reports.
The mayor’s announcement on the social media had dozens of responses from all over the world, including the US, the UK, Indonesia and Hungary.
Some of them even declined the money, saying that they will be happy with the advantage of a more simple life.
Many of them, as expected, asked about the internet speed in the village.
The entire village has four restaurants, a library, pharmacy, a post office that opens three times a week, a corner shop and a Bed & Breakfast.
There is also a doctor who visits the village three times a week.
The nearest city, Genoa, is 50 miles away; so it will allow you to go out and explore the surroundings.
