Some Italians Are Inviting Refugees in
They’re saying alla famiglia. With more than 100,000 refugees crossing the ocean, landing in Italy and seeking a new life in Europe, Rome is puzzling over where to put its new residents. Four cities are testing a solution: Migrants in the Family, which puts refugees in local households for nine months in order to learn Italian and integrate into society. The family gets $330 a month to cover associated costs, and while some protest that the refugees shouldn’t be welcomed, participants are hoping to foster a more diverse Italy.
