That's right, anyone with a couple of million pounds to spare could be the lucky new owner of a whole Italian village. The place has been deserted for 50 years, so there's not even any pesky locals to deal with. Just think, you wouldn't even have to learn Italian. The deal includes 25 cottages and eight hectares of land with only deer, wild boar and some wolves for neighbours.
The Italian Prime Minister warned today of a potential crisis if Italy's debt level is not reduced, so you might want to hold off on this purchase -- it won't be long before he starts putting whole towns up on eBay as part of his deficit reduction plan. That's bound to work out great. [Guardian]
