The attractive hilltop town erupted into celebration after they got wind of the news about the win. Locals bought Prosecco bottles and toasted one another on the street.
The winner only spent two euros to purchase lottery tickets prior to attaining the huge sum. The focus was on Mr Verni, who was unmarried and in his late forties. He stayed on his own, in a simple house.
