It's one of the smallest European nations (It's a little greater than Sicily) and one of the poorest, following four centuries of Turkish domination, of the following Italian annexation and of decades of a rigid communist system that have isolated her from the rest of the world up to the years '90.
These are the motives for the thick immigration in Italy and of the desperation of the population.
The things are slowly improving and nowadays Albania is a safe country in strong economic and social growth where's possible to enjoy the splendid sea (the Adriatic is in front of the Tremblings and to the Greek pearl of Corf¨!) and the sour mountains of the northern Epiro.
