The summer heat makes us crave higher altitudes. A move to the mountains might seem enticing as Florence falls to penultimate place in Corriere della Sera and weather channel ilMeteo.it’s Indice di Vivibilità Climatica (Climate Livability Index) caused by 34 days of over 35-degree heat in 2023. Now there’s a financial incentive as well thanks to recently announced funding by the Tuscany Regional Government.

Residenzialità in Montagna 2024 is the name of the public funding project aimed at encouraging people to move to Tuscany’s mountain areas in an effort to repopulate and stimulate their economic growth.

In order to qualify for the funding, you need to be over 18, an Italian or EU citizen, or be a non-EU citizen with a permit to stay in Italy that is valid for no less than 10 years, and be legally residing in an Italian municipality that is not in the mountains.

Applicants must purchase a property for residential use and applications must be made online before 1pm CET on July 27. Carta Nazionale dei Servizi (CNS), Sistema Pubblico di Identità Digitale (SPID) or Carta d’Identità Elettronica (CIE) are required for authentication purposes. 

The minimum amount that can be requested is 10,000 euro, while 30,000 euro is the maximum threshold. The funding will cover up to 50 per cent of the expenditure incurred in buying the real estate.
