‘I can’t afford this’: Renters in Tuscany face eviction
Rome, Italy — The eviction of renters in Tucchinas village apartments in Toscino di Tuscania in northern Italy is becoming a real nightmare.
“We are on the brink of eviction,” said Francesco Pinto, a landlord.
The landlord said the eviction notice arrived from Tuscans Housing Authority on Tuesday.
The eviction notices are often issued to tenants who do not pay rent, the landlord said.
One of the tenants who is being evicted is an elderly man who was evicted for non-payment of rent.
The landlord was also evicted on Tuesday by Tuscan residents who said they were angry at the government for not doing enough to address the crisis.
Tucchinan Mayor Stefano Carminati said that he has not heard from Toscinans Housing Ministry about the eviction notices.
Toscinas Housing Authority is an agency that manages the housing of more than 1.3 million people in Tocchinas.
The government says the housing is the responsibility of the state.

Carnita Pinto and her son had been paying rent for five years.
The Toscinians Housing Administration said they are entitled to be paid the rent due on March 10.
But they cannot pay the rent because they do not have a valid identification card.
The Toscinean government said that they are not obligated to pay the money, but if they do, they can use the money to pay other expenses.
The eviction notices were sent to the Pintos’ home.
But the couple is not sure where to turn to.
They said that it is impossible to afford the rent, because the apartment is in a private property.
They said that their rent is $1,200 per month.
The Pinto family is currently renting an apartment in a neighboring village.
The Pinto’s landlord, Francesco Gazzana, said that Toscinos Housing Authority could have helped them in their situation.
He said that if the agency had been helpful, they could have paid the remaining rent.
But the agency has not been.
The housing authority said that the municipality has no legal obligation to help tenants, and it does not have the power to grant eviction orders.
As a result, many of the Toscinaans are paying off their debt to the housing authority to pay off their housing bills, and they are being evictions.
The government has not responded to a request for comment on the situation.
