PATHS OF EMPOWERMENT OF CULTURAL AND PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES FOR SOCIAL REINSERTION OF PEOPLE UNDER RESTRICTIVE MEASURES OF THEIR PERSONAL FREEDOM
Starting from the concept of quality of life in the penal institutions and the concept of prison as a place for the rehabilitation and reintegration of the prisoner within the social fabric, it is certainly appropriate to increase the relationship between prison and society, between those who They are inside and those who are “over the wall”. Hence involvement both in Mantua that the Penitentiary Institute of the Office of Criminal Execution Outside of Mantova and Cremona.
Thanks to ‘art. 27 of the Italian Constitution, the concept of rehabilitation of the prisoner is elevated to a principle of constitutional status, which must be understood as the development of the values of life in society. In order to increase these social values the prisoner will have to live in a proper context, both in terms of the spaces of the reports, which should be continuous with the external company, bond previously violated by the crime and need to be rebuilt with a view accountability and empowerment as well as restorative justice.
The prison, and then the office EPE, should be considered as a natural continuum of the social fabric exterior, in fact the prison system lists which factors primarily educational work, followed by education, by the cultural, recreational, sports and bonds social, especially with family.
The inadequacy of space intramurari, this hotel combines the precarious conditions of the living environment and socialization, it contributes to the dehumanization of the person and then to a gross violation of fundamental human rights (ECHR, 2009, 2013).
The proposed project aims to achieve the following objectives:
- Improvement of living conditions in the Prison of Mantova, retraining and humanizing spaces penalty, promoting intramurari suitable places for socializing and thus strengthening social ties and among the inmates of the prison facility that mending the relationship with the external community;
- Investment on retraining and employment of some of those detained in the Prison of Mantua;
- Promotion of voluntary activities, by persons detained at the District of Mantova and entrusted to the Office of Criminal Execution Outside, oriented paths of empowerment and restorative justice;
- Strengthening and awareness of formal and informal network in the area that could result in the potential for inmate access to a greater number of training and employment opportunities that enable a real social and occupational reintegration.
The structural action will focus primarily on two places inside the Correctional Facility: the kitchen and the auditorium. These devices are functional and closely related to paths of trainings and socialization that later will be hosted by those spaces: hence an integrated design with multiple purposes.
