About us
We seek to improve the integration of migrants in European societies by breaking down negative public perception and developing & showing creative communication skills of non-EU citizens living in EU. We especially encourage face2face encounters in Czechia, Spain, Italy and United Kingdom.


In this section, you can find information and news related to the F2F project and in general migration integration in Italy. Most of the articles are published in Italian, however, we seek to add at least an annotation in English. Bergamo-based NGO – CESVI (www.cesvi.org) – is responsible for realizing integration activities in Italy within the F2F project, and thus also for information provided here.

But how this sort of “forced cohabitation” is felt by host community members and third countries nationals daily travelling by bus, train or underground? May  public transports be a place of possible interaction and integration?

Some of the “Face2Face” participants in Italy found out answers to this questions interviewing some passengers of the bus line 90-91 of Milan, one of the most populated by migrants and citizens in the 24 hours.
