Lampedusa, the small Italian island of barely 6,000 inhabitants, staged the migratory emergency in Europe this week and reopened the debate on the challenges that Italy and the European Union have in this matter. More than 12,000 immigrants arrived across the Mediterranean in search of a new life, most of them from Tunisia. The president of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, visited the island with President Giorgia Meloni, to whom she promised “a European response” to redistribute protection to the thousands of people who arrive on Italian shores each year. .

This is the main report of the new installment of ARTE Europa Semanal, the informative program produced by Arte that EL PAÍS broadcasts every week and which can be seen in the video of this news item. The episode also includes an interview with Jacopo Zanchini, deputy editor of the Italian newspaper Internationalin which he assures that Meloni's far-right government is more focused on propaganda than on finding solutions. "Politics [migratoria] of Meloni has failed,” he points out.
