Children play around tents under the portico of the Roman Catholic Basilica of the “Twelve Holy Apostles” in downtown Rome, Monday, August 28, 2017. Since early August, the 15th-century portico has been sheltering some one hundred persons, including Italians and other Europeans as well as migrants, who are homeless after being evicted earlier this month from a building they had occupied on the outskirts of Rome.
