I live here in my own caravan. It's a bit smaller than this one. The camps are dirty, very dirty. It's very hard, it's not a real home. There's only water in the toilets and some parts but no proper services like in a home. It's dirty and too many people live here. I'd like to move out of here sometime and live in a house or a flat but I'd miss my friends from the camp. It's important for me to live in a Roma community.


This is at the camp. It's the step at the door to the public toilet. These are the water pipes. There are only six or seven toilets for the camp. There's one of these toilets for each family. There are about 10 people in each family. My family moved away from here. My mother died and there's only my father here now. My brothers and sisters are in another camp near Milan now and in other camps in Italy. I try to make a bit of money by collecting scrap iron and selling it.


This is the door to the toilet. The writing says; 'Please clean up after eating. Thank you, the prison director'.


This is near the foreigners office. I go there quite often for documents, information, to look for a job etc.


This is a market on Via Bologna, local to my camp. It's similar to Porta Palazzo but smaller. These stalls remind me a bit of the one my father had, when we lived in Bosnia.


Sometimes when I'm there, I go to this bar to have a coffee or a beer and listen to music. It's got a good juke box.


This is the Municipality office on Via Consolatta. it's a place where people go for getting their identity card and permission to work.


This is Via Garibaldi. I go here at the weekend to walk with friends. I like to go here and to the market at Porta Palazzo. It's an important meeting point. It's very cheap to buy useful things and it's a good place to go to meet girls.


I like to go walking around the city centre. It's a bit similar to the town I came from in Bosnia, but on a bit bigger scale. I came here with my family because my father thought that life would be better in Italy.
Is it difficult for Roma to cross the border to get into Italy?
Yes, because many don't have cars and many don't have documents or passports. So, sometimes they take another route, through the forest or something like that.


This is the cemetery. It's where my mother is buried. I go here quite often to visit her grave.


This is where I buy flowers when I go to visit her.


This is a place near the camp, behind the hospital where I go to buy some wine with some friends or on a Saturday so that we can drink wine with our meal on Sunday.


This is the hospital. My mother was in here for some time before she died.
Are there any problems for Roma to get health care?
Not in terms of the treatment available. Only in terms of discrimination, the attitude towards us.


In the background, there's a building you can go to get some social services and things like clothes for children and elderly people.
