A refugee fromn Mauritania assists to a class of Italian in the refugee center of Tor Sapienza, a suburb of Rome, According to European rules, the first country hit by illegal immigrants fleeing their countries (mostly  Africans)  must  take care of  hosting them while  deciding what to do with this human and social touching cases. Surrounded by Sea, Italy receives a good portion of this unexpected and unwanted guests who reaches by any means the island of  Lampedusa .The turmoil and unrest in Northern Africa, the fall of dictator  Gheddafi in Lybia and the unstoppable war in Syria have worsen this panorama.<br />
Once in Lampedusa  island, those who ask for  political asylum are transported by Italian Government  to special facilities to prove their sayings and getting ,or not , the right to stay in Europe.<br />
After what seemed an endless bureaucracy, our photographer Lorenzo Moscia got the  authorization  to visit one of such center in the Tor Sapienza, where 40 immigrants wait for their fate. Helped by a good willing group of Italian who teach the immigrants  their language and try to organize their cases, this center was in the middle of a series of attacks by poor Italian neighbors who regard this immigrants like a danger to their jobs and life style. A sort poor against the poorer war. That attacked during last November 2014 put in danger the life of all the inmigrants, including their child who must have to be moved to safer places by the authorities.<br />
Now things seems a little easier but tension persists, Lorenzo got inside Tor Sapienza many times to shows us how immigrants are still trying to set up a new life.
