About Open Encounters
After crossing continents, countries, the Sahara desert and the Mediterranean, now they are on the next journey, of settling their lives in Italy, and beyond.

From humanitarian storytelling publication Migrants of the Mediterranean, the Open Encounters podcast brings light to the migrant flow in Italy and the EU in human terms.
