Between the meeting points and the places to pray of Milan’s Islamic community, these are the stories of Saadi Nassim, a Tunisian, and Sultan Mohamad, who were first under investigation, then arrested and eventually acquitted. Stories of people living in old warehouses that have been transformed into mosques, where they meet every Friday to pray, to look for jobs and to create a critical mass of people demanding the right to vote in a country that accepts them but doesn’t recognize them.
