"Rotalianul' reports that multiple investigations in Sicily led to the development of a documentary (''I go to school too'') about the life conditions of Romanian children whose parents work as farm workers near the cities of Vittoria and Acate.

Recruited by intermediary illegal agencies and obliged to live in barracks, these men and women have to face long working hours in greenhouses while their children are abandoned without any access to formal education.

Law enforcement agencies and trade unions are trying to stop the illegal and forced work while, at the same time, local social workers are helping children to attend school and experience a normal life along with other kids of their age.
