I met O. (name undisclosed) from Nigeria at the RO.DO.PA centre, once a Residence Hotel in Battipaglia, south of Italy. The centre shelters mostly refugees from Africa. Those that have shared their experiences have recounted acts of extreme torture and segregation in Libya, where many have taken a boat from to reach Italy. O. recounted that being in Lybia was something indescribable. In fact, he said if I wanted to know, I should go there. There are no words that can describe that hell. O. -Ro.do.pa. centre, Battipaglia, near Salerno, south of Italy.
