Vlora ship

The 8 August of the 1991 landed the Vlora ship. Another wave of migrants on a ship coming from Albania. 8 August 1991 docked the merchant ship from Durazzo with twenty thousand Albanians on board in the port of Bari.

It was the second major landing in Puglia after the March one. The Albanians were transferred from the quay to the Victory stadium. That day leaves the images of the ship "Vlora" imprinted in the collective memory with thousands and thousands of people on board. The refugee ship, first rejected in Brindisi and diverted to the north towards Monopoli, was then hooked by tugs and moored in the port of the Apulian capital.
