I'm totally serious here - does anybody here need a free castle in Italy?

Quote:Why Italy is giving away 100 historic buildings for free

Italy is giving away more than 100 historic buildings - including castles, houses, and towers - in a bid to boost 'slow tourism' and tempt visitors away from the overcrowded city centres.

Old houses, inns, farmhouses, monasteries and ancient castles are all up for grabs - and you won’t have to pay a penny. In total, 103 sites are available, dotted across the country from north to south.

The only catch is that those who take up the offer will have to commit to restoring and transforming the sites into tourist facilities, such as hotels, restaurants, or spas.

What an undertaking, if you have the time.

Go figure. They can't even give away a castle in Italistan.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Is there any more info on this aside from a story that barely glosses over the subject?
So richly ambiguous and full of omissions. coffeetime.gif

chuckle.gif That was a little sparse of facts I guess. I have to run, but when I get back I'll look into it more and post what I find.

I know a guy who may be interested for real.
I see the dead line is June 26th, but I need to find a list and pics of the properties.

He better go to YouTube and check out the immigrant situation first.

He's from the EU, and the refugees are in cities, not in rural areas.

They will be in the rural areas when the fighting starts.

A lot of that I'm certain. Where is the money coming from would be my first question. The amount it would take to renovate some old castle would be in the millions, add to that the skilled labor, and everything in between.
I know how expensive and what a headache it is just to remodel a kitchen.  gaah.gif
