In 2010, France’s anti-gypsy campaign has sparked international criticism by deporting Roma, often called Gypsies, of Eastern European decent. Italy has been facing a similar “Gypsy Emergency”.

Blaming crime on the increase of Roma immigrants in the past couple of years, authorities are dismantling large Gypsy camps outside of Milan and Rome. The goal was to level the camps before the end of 2010, according to Riccardo De Corato, who is Milan’s vice mayor from Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s ruling party and who is in charge of handling the camps.
