Remember the Italian village that said it would pay people to move there and offer $50 rents?

Never mind.

According to Travel + Leisure, the mayor of Bormida has clarified his statement, saying it was "only a suggestion."

Mayor Daniele Galliano is asking people to "stop calling" about the offer.

Galliano says the bonus, worth about $2,200 U.S., is "a project that we hope to achieve in 2018."

And the $50 rents could happen as early as July.

An Italian news site said Bormida's town council received calls from 17,000 people about the offer.
