It's not in the Europe section anymore, so it's an international thread.

They're private investments but most of them receive some subsidies from the Italian government. The entire city centre of Palermo was largely abandoned after WWII and left to decay, until the '90s when the city began renovating all the public-owned buildings.

This, together with some streets renovation, had the effect to create some interest in the City Centre. Private owners began renovating their homes, with financiary help from the city administration. This way, every year more buildings were renovated and even sometimes re-built Dresden-style, when there was only a pile of rubble from WWII bombings.

The result is very positive You still have some decaying areas, but the city is becoming more beautiful every year. It's funny because, being private-paid renovations, you often see perfectly-renovated buildings standing next to still decaying ones on the same street.

Ruines have been secured and will be integral part of the future buildings.

^ I wouldn't call that revitalization. It seems just like any major city changing over time in the eastern US
