Title:  Liberi Nantes: the first football team in Italy made up of refugees

 

Type:  Video (Project/Team)

 

Location:  Italy

 

Name of Responsible Persons: Unknown

Date:  Thursday, 1st October 2015

 

The Italian Terza Categoria team Liberi Nantes is composed of refugees and migrants, formed by Alberto Urbinati who was angered by the exclusion and racism within Italian football. The players primarily come from Mali, Gambia, Togo, and the Ivory Coast. Their futures are uncertain because it takes a long time until they are granted asylum. Football is used as a metaphor on how the migrants and refugees can integrate into Italian society, as well as a way to help the newcomers forget about their problems and have a bit of fun until their paperwork is sorted out.
