The trip to Africa of the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella continues. Today, Wednesday 15 March, a visit to the “Luigi Broglio” Space Center is scheduled, a strategic asset for both Italy and Kenya in the field of space technologies, research and satellite data analysis. Then, Mattarella will return to Nairobi, where in the evening he will greet the diplomatic staff and meet the Italian community in Kenya. Yesterday the meeting was held with the Kenyan president William Ruto, at the end of which the head of the Quirinale raised a double alarm: that of climate change, in particular drought, which worsens the already serious migration crisis.
