A different approach to migrants in Riace, Italy

I've heard about Riace in Italy before... where the locals have largely left to go north for jobs and, facing abandoned building and collapse, the town mayor has strategically opened the down and facilities to asylum seekers and migrants to breathe new life into the area.

The article goes into depth about how this integration and inclusion is being approached in this small town as well as small profiles of the Riace's newest residents.

I'm wondering if this model could/has been replicated elsewhere... what do you think?
