A region in Italy is desperate for residents. In fact, they say they will pay people $27,000 to move there and start a business AND a family! They are really looking for people either with small children or couples ready to have kids (well, that counts me out! #nomokids). If this sounds like you, one town is Filignano which only has 700 residents there now. So in thinking of a business, you would need to find one that could survive on that few people willing to come shop/eat/etc in your business to keep you afloat. I've always wanted to open a coffee shop/bakery, but an American coffee shop in Italy? Prob a no go, am I right?
