When immigration is considered a resource.

Riace is a little municipality in the province of Reggio Calabria (furthest south of Italy). Many inhabitants left in order to look for professional opportunities abroad or in other Italian cities.

«In the last years, the mayor Domenico Lucano has introduced some incentives to stimulate immigrants to settle in the small town». The result? New students at school and a renovated impulse to the local economic activities «thanks to the work of the foreign communities» (la Repubblica.it).
