Since the early 2000s, Lampedusa has become a prime transit point for immigrants from Africa, the Middle East and Asia wanting to enter Europe. With the new food crisis and the Libia's War, the situation is become more critique. Almost every day migrants arrived in Lampedusa, then transferred in the Centre for Identification and reception (CIE - CARA) and, after a variable period, in other places in Italy.
