A very good news for Imperia: the works for the realization of the new cycle path, which today already counts 24 km of track from Ospedaletti to San Lorenzo al Mare, are ending also in Imperia and in a few months will cross the city of Imperia until Diano Marina.
A very important work that will further enrich our territory and will connect all our Riviera, allowing long walks by the sea to enjoy our famous Ligurian micro-climate. An ecological public transport is also planned to connect Oneglia and Porto Maurizio, avoiding city traffic.
Two new walks also are planned in Imperia: one between Rabina and Galeazza and the other near the Prarola Tower. All works are expected to be completed within the next summer.

The simply answer is NO: unlike other countries in the EU, as France, in Italy there will be no changes for Brits from 1st January 2021.
Taxation on property in Italy is the same for Italians, EU citizens and non-EU citizens. Same easy rules if you buy, maintain or want to sell your property in Italy, no matter your nationality.
Moreover, considering that tax to pay when you buy a re-sale property and to maintain a property (re-sale or newly built) are calculated on the Tax Value “Valore Catastale” that in Liguria is sensible less (60/70% less) than the Commercial Value, the taxes to pay to buy and to maintain a property along the Italian Riviera are so much less than the ones to be paid in other territories, such as in neighboring French Riviera.
