The Centre's former car park has been converted into a football pitch, but today it is deserted. The 41 "guests" are in the three sections on the second floor and are awaiting our visit. Today none of them can play football. Everything has to be kept under control as much as possible, at least for today- at least during the visit of the Pd (The Democratic Party) politician, the Honorable Alessandra Siragusa. On the first floor, the vice Prefect, an officer from the Trapani Police Headquarters and the Director of the CIE are waiting for us.
The first two rooms on corridor 14 are empty. Generally the "livelier" immigrants, those transferred from other Italian CIEs and those waiting to be repatriated are the ones who end up behind bars in isolation. In fact in the last few months, it is this CIE, Serraino Vulpitta in Trapani, that has become the place of transit for hundreds of irregular Tunisian migrants waiting to be boarded onto flights from Palermo back to Tunisia.
