In a bid to repopulate rural areas and combat the effects of urbanization and emigration, many towns and villages in Italy have adopted a scheme of selling homes for €1 ($1.12).

It's a problem that's widespread across the nation, and its islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

In Molise, a mountainous region on the country's Adriatic east coast, authorities have taken things a step further.

The region will offer visitors €700 ($770) a month for three years to live there, Donato Toma, the president of Molise, told the Guardian.

"I show them how Neanderthals lived, what they ate, how they lit fires, used a spear. I show them how to use the basic equipment to cook." For customers who opt for the beginners' survival course, "I provide them with enough to get by with." But more advanced customers have to find their own food over a number of days. "That makes people understand that the brain uses the most energy. And even very simple calculations become difficult after three days without food," he smiles.

"If we had offered funding, it would have been yet another charity gesture," Toma said.

"We wanted to do more; we wanted people to invest here. They can open any sort of activity: a bread shop, a stationery shop, a restaurant, anything. It's a way to breathe life into our towns while also increasing the population."

Each of these underpopulated towns will also receive €10,000 ($11,000) to build infrastructure and promote cultural activities, Toma announced.

"It's not just a matter of increasing the population. People also need infrastructure and a reason to stay, otherwise we'll end up back where we started in a few years," he said.

The Guardian also shared a number of statistics that denote the region's dwindling population problem. 9,000 people have left Molise since 2014, according to the Italian National Institute of Statistics, and now just 305,000 remain.

In 2018, not a single birth was registered in nine of the province's towns, while almost 1,000 more people died or moved away than the year previously.

Molise is just one of many parts of Italy suffering from depopulation.

In Ollolai, Sardinia, one of the towns selling homes for as little as €1, the population has almost halved in the last half-century from 2,250 people to 1,300.

Likewise, a town called Locana in the northern region of Piedmont was offering to pay people €9,000 ($10,200) to move there - as long as you had a family.

"Our population has shrunk from 7,000 residents in the early 1900s to barely 1,500 as people left looking for a job at Turin's big factories," Locana's mayor Giovanni Bruno Mattiet told CNN Travel. "Our school each year faces the risk of shutting down due to few pupils. I can't allow this to happen."
