Seminar "Migration, Crisis and Gambling"
March 15, 2014 - lost on Cesv, via Liberiana 17, Rome - edited by Psy Plus Onlus e Orthos project
In recent years, the opportunities for gambling have multiplied and branched across the territory, differentiating and pervading every social space. In recent times, numerous Las Vegas-style game rooms have flourished in Rome which in terms of turnover and social damage have nothing to envy to the real casinos.
We are constantly witnessing the opening of spaces dedicated to gambling, in particular slot machines, which occupy spaces left empty by commercial or artisan businesses forced to close due to the crisis. A crisis that is often exacerbated by the illusion of being able to face it by relying on chance, luck. In this context, among the categories vulnerable to the phenomenon we can count all those who, having recently arrived in the area, and experiencing the difficulties of integration paths on their own, find themselves having to manage the coincidence of the economic crisis with the complexity of creating the own migration project. The exploratory survey - Rome Gambling Survey - and this seminar deal with the theme of the relationship between the existential condition of the immigrant and the offerings of hope tokens that proliferate on our territories.
