In Italy there are more than a million girls and boys without Italian citizenship. Many of them were born in our country or arrived as children. Their life is linked to Italy but they don’t have the same opportunities and rights as other kids their age because according to the law they are not Italian. They are suspended in a limbo that does not allow them to pursue and fully realize their dreams. The best athletes are recognized as theirs successes in the youth categories even if they do not yet have citizenship, but cannot compete and represent Italy in international events. Sport is just a symbol of all the denied opportunities in every area of the life of girls and boys that the State does not consider “Italian”.
