The Leonardo Da Vinci airport of Fiumicino (Rome), the main international transit stop in Italy, is also used by migrants and asylum seekers, primarily from Maghreb, to enter the Schengen area. As they are lacking a travel visa, migrants are often sent back. According to the Association for Juridical Studies on Immigration, even Syrian women and children have been rejected from Fiumicino.
