More than 100 Africans who have fled the war in Libya have been resolved in a hotel by the police authority Brescia
In the darkness, the hotel that appeared after the last curve seemed to ignore the film by Stanley Kubrick, The Shining. But that's where the similarity ends. Montecampione, altitude 1800 meters, is a ski resort at the end of the winding road from the valley of Camonica in Lombardy. The most striking when we got here, was greeted with the faces and voices of another continent.
Since late June, more than 100 Africans who have fled the war in Libya have been solved here by the police authority of Brescia, in line with the policy of the Italian government to disseminate Lampedusa immigrants across the country. In most places that local authorities were required to your home, but here, the private sector were also asked to contribute. The hotel houses and feeds the migrants Montecampione by ? 40 per head per day.
The nearest town in the valley is more than 20 km, so that migrants are isolated from the outside world, pending a decision on his fate. The monotony of his life is broken only by meals and in turn to use the internet and mobile, giving them a break for a few minutes of boredom and isolation. "We live in a strange situation," admitted a young man named Michael Ghanaian animated. "We have absolutely nothing to do, but we are all eager to find jobs and start our lives."
For now, all migrants is the piece of paper in Lampedusa have given their arrival. To obtain a temporary residence permit if they are lucky, refugee status, they must go through a complicated procedure, and the authorities are overworked in bulk.The hotel manager, Giuseppe Crucitti is also doing its part. "My staff and I are doing more than was called for in the agreement with the Police Department. Just look to understand what these men have passed. "
Crucitti also distributes donated clothing for the inhabitants of the valley. Many migrants came in just T-shirts and flip flops, even in the mountains is already heating explosion in the night and need a little sunshine to thaw during the day.
A doctor at a local medical center comes by once or twice a week. The hotel manager told us that many people will ask for something to help them sleep, because they are still traumatized by the events they have experienced. A young Nigerian named Kelly, who was arrested and beaten by the troops of Gaddafi before getting away, he said sadly: "I have no hope When I arrived in Italy, I tried to explain my situation, but no one seems to understand what. I've been through. "
