In this photo taken on Monday, April 27, 2020, a man sits outside a house where 46 men, from Nigeria and Ghana live in Castel Volturno, near Naples, Monday, Southern Italy. The house has no running water, the dilapidated electrical system doesn't reach many rooms that are in the dark. They are known as “the invisibles,” the undocumented African migrants who, even before the coronavirus outbreak plunged Italy into crisis, barely scraped by as day laborers, prostitutes and seasonal farm hands. Locked down for two months in their overcrowded apartments, their hand-to-mouth existence has grown even more precarious with no work, no food and no hope. (AP Photo/Alessandra Tarantino)
