In pictures: Warehouse a home for Italy's migrants

Fire risk

The old factory is often filled with smoke from fires used for cooking and heating, and Edward says there has already been one fire that they managed to contain.

The immigrants say another concern is their lack of legal protection.

They say that in December two immigrants were robbed at gunpoint, shot and injured, and they are worried that there might more violence.
