A centre for immigrants in Italy is looking for women to satisfy the sexual needs of 44 immigrants.

Disproof

This is disinformation from last year.  The post was a social experiment; the post was left online for days to study the reactions on social networks and then write an article about it. At that time the outlets did not mention the real reason for the post and the news became viral. This news is just a copy and paste of the former disinfromation.
