On September 28, 2012, after 16 years, about 250 romani families, mostly Bosnians, are forcibly evicted from the Tor de' Cenci camp in Rome in violation of international standards on evictions and without being offered an adequate housing alternative. The closure of this camp is part of the Nomad Plan, which aims to close Rome's informal and "tolerated" camps, and resettle their residents in authorized camps. The italian romani communities live in a perpetual condition of 'freeze' and 'suspension' despite the government's promises to take serious social inclusion policies. This condition also denies to the romani communities the possibility of producing specific projections for their future lives.
