The administration explained ” Despite the fame of the Sextantio hotel and the love of tourists for our Medici village we do not have the human capital necessary for a sustainable and lasting development of the territory. Our residents currently total only 115, almost half are over 65 and only 13 are under 20 hence our drive to attract young entrepreneurial youngsters!

Hi the application form is only in Italian, Is there an English version ?
Hi Eddie, I’m afraid the form is only in Italian, you could email the comune and ask if they have a pdf version that you could use as guide which you could then translate and then send it through? Or you could copy and paste using Google translate?
Hello) Do someone know when the results will be available to see? I had filed application form but don’t receive any reply. Thanks
The comune received an incredible response, more than 20,000 applications. I would suggest emailing them direct but perhaps hold off till after Christmas. They are a small comune and to process each applicant is going to take a while. 🙂
Dear Sam! Thank you very much for quick reply and lets hold on till Christmas ) 20,000 applicants, wow!!! Lets cross the fingers!
Is this scheme still going on ?
They did have a closing date but not sure if they managed to find all the right people. It would be worth contacting them directly to ask.
Thank you. Is there any contact email you could help me with ?
Hi there, the link for the application is a dead end for me, is there another way to get to this application?
It’s long past the deadline but you could email them to see if they have further schemes or fulfilled their quota email@example.com
