PALAZZO BERNINI – SHUT OUT (Tale of an eviction).

From 17th to 23rd July 2012, all points of access to the Palazzo Bernini were gradually bricked up. Palazzo Bernini has been housing 150 people, mainly Bulgarians and Romanians, for months. No alternative accommodation has been proposed by the local council. Today all of them are on the street. Many have gone to the shanty town in Corso dei Martiri, whilst others remain under the Palazzo’s archways. Just over ten people have returned to Romania. The whole city has remained indifferent to the eviction which took place.
