Mayor Domenico Venuti said the scheme is part of efforts to revitalize the town, which has seen its population continue to dwindle after about 4,000 residents left the area after a 1968 earthquake.
“All buildings belong to the City Council, which speeds up the sale and reduces red tape,” Venuti told CNN.
Venuti said the plan has been in the works for several years, but was stalled due to issues including infrastructure and zoning complications.
“It was a long process,” he said. “Not only did we carry out thorough maintenance works to secure the risky crumbly areas, we also had to recover many properties to residential use. We’ve been ready for a while but wanted to wait and see how the COVID-19 emergency evolved.”
