Somali Refugees in Italy
Fled from a twenty year long civil war many Somali people hope to find a better life in Italy. The Italian state recognizes them as refugees but, at the same time, don’t provide, except for some sporadic intervention, any housing program, any language school, any job searching support.
In this situation many Somali refugees trying to live a normal life forced to sleep inside abandoned building or, in some cases, hosted in welcome centre for refugees only able to give them hospitality for few months.
