Terrible arson attack in the "CENTRO DI ACCOGLIENZA DI LAMPEDUSA"
Were the Tunisians who have started the fire.
They do not want to return to Tunisia.
But they haven't right to stay in Europe because they aren't victims of political persecution.
According to bilateral agreements, they must return to their country.
These things are killing this island..

Was short but intense holiday,

I hope they give so much joy to you that look photos.
To Linosa I have been invaded by the fragrance and flavor of the lentils and capers,
the specialties of ANNA restaurant,
I had the great fortune to meet old friends and having new friends, I had an exchange of point of views with Francesco,
