The Islamisation of Rome: A shocking comparison between 1950 and 2010. By Voice of Europe.

There was no mass Islamic migration to Italy until the late 1980s. Since the country changed its migration policy in 1981, the number of migrants doubled from 321,000 to 625,000 (1.1 per cent of the population) in just 10 years.

Since then, migration increased dramatically and in January 2016, more than 5 million foreigners are living in Italy, or about 8.4 per cent.

Almost one-third of them are Muslim and the number of them increased by 130 per cent between 1999 and 2009.
