Cinquefrondi's Mayor Michele Conia believes the mission to bring people into the town is one of hope, so much so he calls it “Operation Beauty.”

“Finding new owners for the many abandoned houses we have is a key part of the Operation Beauty [mission] that I have launched to recover degraded, lost parts of town,” Conia told CNN.

“Too many people have fled from here over the decades, leaving behind empty houses. We can’t succumb to resignation.”

Realistically, the town is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Aspromonte National Park and overlooks both the Ionian and Tyrrhenian coasts, adding ot the ruggedness of Cinquefrondi’s urban scenery.

“We rise between the refreshing hills and two warm seas, a pristine river runs nearby and the beaches are just 15 minutes away by car.

That sounds like a good deal to us!
