When I was at the last year of the law school, I read an article in a magazine written by the detainees in the prison in the city where I lived. It was written by a foreigner detainee. The message was how happy he would be if someone could help him writing a letter to obtain the rights he was entitled to, since he didn't know them and he was not proficient in the language. These words really spoke to me. I wrote him a letter offering my help, even if of course I knew very few things, being only a law student. The editorial board answered me and a friendship with some detainees started. It has been with them that I set up some years later a legal clinic in Padova, exporting the model of "Avvocato di Strada" (The street lawyer] an association founded in Bologna to help homeless people. Many years later, In 2012, ASGI started a project founded by Open Society foundations promoting the right of stateless Roma to a legal status, through paralegals help (Out of Limbo).
