  • You have to see this: small apartments at the unique price for people who would otherwise have trouble, what to find. The whole system you must have just seen and visited.

  • the neighborhood near downtown Augusta is a true "gem" considering that this neighborhood is designed for poor families of the time at the beginning of 1500 I find it truly amazing. He also inhabited the great-grandfather of Mozart and even today the residents are the poorest families and pay rent less than 1 euro per year. IF YOU ARE IN THE AREA WORTH A QUICK VISIT.

  • To visit this old village for those in need, still inhabited by the elderly and students. A model that you should copy still today
