With Invitalia for the recovery of earthquake-stricken municipalities of Marche

The image accompanying the News on the "Resto Qui" initiative dedicated to the Marche municipalities affected by the earthquake, with Invitalia, to support the maintenance and rebirth of the economic and employment fabric of the areas of the seismic crater, portrays a smiling woman with long loose brown hair. The woman is wearing a shirt and behind her you can see plants arranged in pots and on shelves.

Through the "Resto Qui" ("I'm Staying") initiative dedicated to the municipalities of the Marche region affected by the earthquake, Intesa Sanpaolo and Invitalia are supporting the resilience and revitalisation of the economies and job markets in earthquake-stricken communities.

The initiative covers 85 municipalities and aims to facilitate the creation of new businesses and support start-ups already operating in the area: it will support initiatives promoted both by residents and by those wishing to move to the municipalities concerned, thus also countering the phenomenon of depopulation.

The relief measures include: 

  • an outright grant equal to 50% of eligible expenses provided by Invitalia
  • a bank loan of 50% of eligible expenses guaranteed by the Central Guarantee Fund for SMEs
  • an interest-rate subsidy provided by Invitalia

Financing may also be obtained for the purchase of plant, machinery, hardware, equipment, software, ITC solutions, raw materials and building materials.

Companies (including cooperatives), freelance professionals and sole proprietorships established after 21 June 2017 may submit an application exclusively through the Invitalia website.

Intesa Sanpaolo Group branches are at customers' disposal to provide information and assistance.
