Since we find more and more dead bodies or human remains in our nets, we’ve decided to go elsewhere in order to avoid being confronted with these gruesome discoveries (Testimony of a fisherman of Lampedusa Island in Italy )

Every year or every day during this decade, many Africans, young, elders, men, women, entire families coming from Africa try to reach Europe. Many of them die during the journey through the Mediterranean Sea, since they travel in very dangerous conditions without food, compass, water or whatever. Their only one force comes from the hope to find a place where to realize the dream of they life.
Having worked on the African immigration issue in Italy for some international media, and spent time with the immigrants, the author presents through concrete stories of life, what it means for many people to leave their homelands and begin an adventure. This book is also an analytic work on how Western media treat African immigration in Europe; it’s a denunciation of what Africa should do and the hypocrisy which characterizes the management of this sad phenomenon.
