Subject: Re: OT Buying property in Italy?
Hello Ziners:

About 5 to 10 years ago the Wall Street Journal ran an extensive story on the pitfalls of buying property in Tuscany. It was a bubble busting story and should be read by anyone considering buying property in Italy. Unfortunately I no longer subscribe to the WSJ Online Edition, but if you know of anyone with such a subscription ask them to search the archives and locate the story. As I remember the crux of the story was the frustration of dealing with obtaining permissions to do any work whatsoever on property. It was not a pretty picture.
