In 2013 the number of refugees and migrants that arrived to Italy was 42925, mostly from Siria, Eritrea and Somalia while only 14465 of them has asked for asylum application meaning that the majority is using Italy only as a platform of arrival. In Brennero (a small mountain city in north Italy on the border with Austria), on daily basis tens of refugees are trying to reach north Europe using the train line that reaches Munich. They are systematically stopped by the austrian Polizei that identifies them and makes them get off at Innsbruck station, before the repatriation towards Italy. In fact, the Dublin Convention, requires refugees to seek political asylum in the first State they arrive in Europe (witch frequently is Italy), not allowing them to reach other countries where commonly they have relatives or friends able to give some help and, maybe, a better future.
