Francesca’s smile is something contagious: yet, in her smile, there is all the experience of a woman who left Africa and arrived in Italy along a very dangerous route: 5 days to cross the desert, the crossing of Libya, then four days abandoned in the Mediterranean. The arrival in Ragusa, the transfer to Caulonia and there a new life: a story of welcome, a new life project that comes to life despite the difficulties, the different language and a thousand different jobs.
Now Francesca is a point of reference for the many who continue to arrive in Locride on the route of hope: this is the story of integration and hope that we want to tell from the Mediterranean.
