Are you planning to stay in Italy long term, live in Dolce Vita or buy a house as an investment?
Italy is full of opportunities both in the tourism sector and in many rising cities. The real estate sector is particularly dynamic in the cities with a lot of universities such as Milan, Turin, Bologna, Trent and Bolzen to mention a few. However many are willing to bet on the southern regions such as Sicily and Reggio Calabria, where the tourism industry is steadily rising, and many great deals can still be made.
After moving back to Italy from the United States in 2013, I realized how much an accounting and tax firm was needed to help expats living in Italy to comply with the local tax regulations.
