The international migration inflow to Italy is relatively recent phenomenon, dating back to early 1990. Even though, in the last decade a growing number of refugees has reached the Italian coasts. According to the Italian Ministry of Interior, the inflow passed from 4.406 migrants in 2010 to 181.436 in 2016. Housing is crucial in the migratory careers as it represents a key dimension for the social integration process of foreign population. However, this issue is particularly problematic in a country where public housing accounts for only 5.5% of the total housing stock. After presenting the main trends and data about the arrival of refugees in Italy in the new millennium, the lecture focuses on the refugees’ housing trajectories and on the governance of housing system from first landing to long-term housing projects and other local-based service provision. Finally, several insights from innovative local actions and case studies from Lampedusa will be discussed.
