REICHARD, HOST: Are you the entrepreneurial type? Willing to relocate? If so, Molise, Italy has a special offer for you! A $27,000 offer.
Now, Molise is a remote mountainous area east of Rome. It has those postcard views: olive groves and historic villages on hilltops.
But most towns there are small- fewer than 2,000 residents. The region needs some new blood, new commerce. Otherwise, regional councilor Antonio Tedeschi worries the place’ll turn into a ghost town.
So, back to that offer I mentioned.
Move to Molise and open a business. For that, you’ll get $770 a month for up to three years. A small inn, a restaurant, a tiny rural farm,” use your creativity.
The program starts this week.
BASHAM: I’m going!
