We know them. They're the gypsies. We are stealing the wallet on the subway. They ask us money on the street. We use them for our shady deals, like "Mafia Capitale", but we are victims of their presence. People who live in a condition of extreme marginalisation, in a social system incapable of integrate them. A very high percentage of kids don't go to school, preventing themselves from any possible change for their future. Their life flows in a big ghettos where everything can happen. Cohabitation is compromised by differences in ethnicity and religious diversity. They have looks that we know.
