The euro has been weakened against the pound and the dollar to the 7-year minimum, and the elite real estate in some Italian regions dropped by 30% for 5-6 years. Many units are vacant in Umbria and Lombardy now.

The views of Italian objects on the Knight Frank portal has grown by 31% from December 2014 to January 2015, due to currency fluctuations and the European Central Bank' policy, the expert believes.
