|Chapter title||Objects, Debris and Memory of the Mediterranean Passage: Porto M in Lampedusa|
This article will consider the current migratory passage in the Mediterranean towards Lampedusa with a focus on memorial objects. The arrival of refugees’ boats, often victims of shipwrecks, on the island of Lampedusa, over the past decades, has produced a large quantity of ‘debris’, which the locals stored in improvised ‘cemeteries’ of boats that were also used as the island’s landfills.
