The project will bring industry to the village as construction workers will be hired to renovate the homes.
Concerns about Mafia activity? Apparently there is no need to worry in this village:
"The Mafia exists, of course, but they are operating at a different level - they are interested in multi-million euro construction projects, not restorations like this," said Ms Wester. "Some people think that if you come here you'll see them walking down the street with guns, but it's not like that."
