My name is Giulio Piscitelli, I'm an Italian freelance photographer. I did photo report on immigration from North Africa to Italy. In mid-March I left for Tunisia to document the journey of Tunisian migrants to Lampedusa. I have visited and lived in the houses where migrants are expected to take the ships bound for the Italian coasts. Behind these journeys of hope there 's a big round of money, often managed by organized criminal groups that traffic in human beings. The first days of April I embarked on a vessel in Zarziz carrying about 150 migrants headed to the island of Lampedusa. After about 25 hours of crossing and the risk of sinking due to engine problems I arrived in Italy. Is often a serious problem because many people die during the crossing of the Mediterranean,furthermore, there is' a political problem for the management of these migratory flows, both from Italy and the rest of Europe. The report concludes with photographic images of the reception center where immigrants from North Africa are housed before being taken to other places in Italy or be repatriated.
