‘Lazio in love’: Italian region offers couples €2,000 wedding payment

Baku, March 2, AZERTAC

Whether the nuptials are in Rome, in a castle or on a beach, authorities in Lazio are giving €2,000 (£1,670) to couples who get married in the region as they seek to salvage the wedding sector from the consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the Guardian.

The initiative, called “In Lazio with love”, is open to Italians and foreigners who marry or have a civil union in the region between 1 January and 31 December 2022.

Couples can make their requests, providing a maximum of five receipts, from Monday and, if accepted, will receive a €2,000 refund on money spent on Lazio-based wedding services, including wedding planners, wedding attire, venues, catering, flowers, car hire and photographers.

The region has set aside a total €10m for the initiative, and applications for the refund can be made up until the end of January 2023, or until the fund runs out.

Since the start of the pandemic, 9,000 couples have wed in Lazio, compared with more than 15,000 in 2019.
