Migrants crisis in Sicily

The growing political and social instability, the worsening of economic conditions, and the ongoing conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa's countries, pushing each year thousands of people to flee their homeland. The desire for a better life is stronger than the knowledge to face a long and dangerous trip whose final destination is Europe. People risk everything, including their lives, having to cross the desert, endure the cruelty of the prisons in Libya and cross the Mediterranean on old fishing boats or rafts. Due to its geographical position, Sicily is one of the entry points in Europe for the African migration. But for many, Italy is only a land of passage.
