An investment plan of 320 €/Mln to be implemented in 25 years aimed at encouraging the economic development of the city and reducing the unemployment rate from the current 22% to 9.5%. The realization of a new "International Museum of Sicilian Ceramics" and the construction of a "university campus" on the Acropolis of the town are the main lines of the Plan. The University is aimed at triggering the process of redevelopment of the houses located in the historic center. They will act as a "Campus".
