The author describes the widely unknown reality of Italian asylum seekers in France. Ex-political activists of the left, they were forced to cross the internal borders of so-called Fortress Europe. The juridical anomaly of their status is highlighted, and their living conditions and political reflections reported. A phenomenon that most would think confined to the unfortunate victims of some Latin American dictatorship, or to the highly glamourized dissidents of ex-Communist countries, is instead occurring within democratic united Europe.
