The paper deals with the effects of the global financial and economic crisis still underway on a specific category of migrants in terms of the socio-economic consequences they have to face and the spillover effects on their attitudes, projects and opinions, but it is also playing out against a background that sees the refugee crisis with its ample media coverage. We select a country of Southern Europe where the economic crisis has been particularly strong and long lasting, Italy, and focus on the flow of care-work migrants - a structural one in our country - describing the changing circumstances of the crisis, their reaction strategies and the way they make sense of what the experience of migration is or should be.
