Processes of social inclusion for unaccompanied migrant minors in the city of Palermo, which, with the support of Unicredit Foundation, has allowed to restructure the spaces, as well as another part of the structure, in which eight young people of the same age, arrived in Italy as children unaccompanied migrants, they found a home.
