Rederij Lampedusa arriving at Mediamatic

In the harbour next to the terrace of Mediamatic ETEN, the two ships from Shipping Company Lampedusa are docked. The respective boats are former refugees ships used by people to cross the Mediterranean Sea. Although the Municipality of Amsterdam allows no more than fifteen people on the largest ship according to its safely regulations, 282 refugees fled on it from North Africa to Lampedusa. Not only has the boat a refugee history, the crew itself largely made up of refugees, and along with Castelein they organize tours through the canals of Amsterdam and tell visitors about their experiences.
