Candela Italy

The mayor of the Italian town of Candela has come up with a practical solution to boost its dwindling population: paying people to become residents. Nicola Gatta wants the small medieval town in Puglia to shine like it did in the 1990s, when more than 8,000 people lived there. Today, there are just 2,700 residents. So, to recover the town's lost grandeur, Mayor Gatta is offering up to 2,000 euros ($2,350) to encourage people to relocate.
