There's a program on Sky tv called "Cercando Casa Disperatamente" (desperately seeking a house). It's pushed me to do a quick post this evening. Arrgghh. It's kind of an Italian version of "Location Location Location". Main difference is, on the UK version there's a bit of a challenge - ie find the right house in the right location for 150,000 pounds - singles, couples, those wanting to buy to rent etc. On this other version it's almost always a couple, occasionally with children, and the lowest budget I've seen so far has been 600,000 euro. This is what's on now and they're looking for a house in Naples coincidentally.
Now, if you have 600,000 euro, you shouldn't need to call up a tv program to find your self a 2 bedroomed house in Naples. There's lots of these on offer. They might be "da ristruttuare", not all done up like they show on this program, but you'll find them. Other recent episodes have had budgets of 700, 800,000 euro. I don't know where they find these people from considering the masses of people in Italy making 1000 euro a month.
I imagine not many people watch this program who are reading, but I just wanted to mini-rant.
