In southern Italy, precisely in Calabria, there is a small town that has decided to open its doors to refugees, in this way it has offered them better accommodation and at the same time has prevented the country from suffering the total abandonment of its inhabitants. Camini, this is its name, is located a few kilometers from the more famous Riace, where this model of hospitality began many years ago. They took inspiration to them and thanks to Riace they started this adventure in 2011, but while, unfortunately in the first municipality, the model failed, leading to the election of a mayor of the League party who after years was moreover ineligible, in Camini, after 10 years, the project resists, indeed it is in better shape than ever. At the moment they are hosting more than 100 refugees, including many children, who live in the houses managed by the cooperative that manages the project and attend ceramic, lutherie, sewing, and weaving workshops. Many learn crafts in the construction field, some take care of the vegetable garden and animals. Thanks to the reception, the nursery school was reopened, an ATM was installed in the village for the first time and a bar and restaurant managed by the cooperative were opened. Cosimina teaches women to make sweets and jam, Cosmano explains to men how to be excellent workers, then there are carpenters, plumbers, and so on. The houses that until a few years ago were closed and decaying are being renovated to accommodate the next refugees or for summer tourists. This can only be defined as a winning integration model which also helps to combat the depopulation of small villages. An entire country welcomes by making everyone feel part of a community, in the knowledge that both sides, in their own way, are fighting for survival.
