For several years, the most interesting offer in many Italian cities, especially deserted ones, has been the sale of houses for one euro. Such opportunities are offered, among others, in Sicilian cities. Interest in these proposals is expressed primarily by foreigners who, by purchasing such a house for a token currency, undertake to renovate it at their own expense.

Concerns of environmentalists

Local media report that when Santa Maria Island was first put up for sale, environmentalists expressed concerns that a tourist resort would be built there, which would disturb the local landscape in this picturesque place located on Sicily’s largest lake, Stagnoni.

The Greens then appealed to the Ministry of Culture to protect them.
