Italians think the number of immigrants is much higher than the real figure. This perception is because of fear

This video examines how Italians perceive immigrants.  Why informs and influences their perception? Why do they fear them?

Chiara Castro interviews Raffaella Saso, vice-director of EURISPES. She explains that Italians fear immigrants who they see as unemployed. They could be a drain on society. Furthermore, Italy does not promote integration. Therefore, illegal activities too often become survival strategies.

Italian media have also promoted negative perceptions and highlighted conflicts over the past ten years, almost never putting forward positive stories. This adds to the negative perception of immigrants.
