Migrate: when Ulysses misses Ithaca

Since the Paleolithic, when our ancestors migrated from Africa, the history of humanity has been the history of migrations. An eternal movement of comings and goings, like a tide of patterns in which centuries of the rise and fall of entire civilizations are summarized.

Migration as a sociocultural phenomenon is a complex fact, both for the countries of departure and for the recipients. Roughly it is a process that helps to invigorate the economy, that revitalizes the workforce of the host place, increases consumption and the payment of taxes, but it can also involve complexities of public spending, cultural contrast and social inadequacy.
