There was near-warfare between Italian and African street merchants at an open market in Catania, a city on the eastern coast of Sicily:

Scenes of urban warfare in Catania. Hard clashes at the Fira o Luni market between Italian and African street sellers. The two groups, composed of a few dozen people each, confronted each other with blows using sticks, blunt objects, and the throwing of bottles. A trader, probably Italian, also tried to run over African antagonists with a van, overturning some (display) benches.

The video was released online by the website Chronicle Vera and has gone viral in a short time. We do not know the reasons that gave rise to the clashes; they may have resulted from issues related to workstations and licenses, since very often the traders, especially foreigners, are not licensed.

This is how they act in Africa so why would they change their ways just because they are in Italy ?
