L'edilizia carceraria in Italia: storia, attualità e prospettive

Risultato della ricerca: Otherpeer review


The evolution of the prison buildings embodies many faces of the history of a country, even if it is a relatively new building typology.The concept of punishment imposed on an offender has in fact undergone several changes over the centuries, related to culture, politics and the natural evolution of human thought.For centuries it has not been imagined a functional distribution ad hoc, but only adaptation of places with small spaces where detain punished.The theme of the plan of the prisons is often been source of debate and is today still open.In Italy the issue of overcrowding and the inadequacy of the prison buildings is a sore point, inadequate both to our own Constitution with European standards and it is currently been faced only with point solutions, which come in response to sanctions rather than to decisions taken after a rational path .Each has problems of a different nature and, apart from a few fortunate exceptions, do not appear to meet all the needs of the user, both the inmates and workers.In a building where a large number of people work as many as the prisoners, for all must be guaranteed the adequate working conditions.The realities considered as emblematic cases are two: a historic building still in use, repeatedly readjusted but with original plant, and a new building.The relationship between these two complex and the city and the analysis of their constructive and functional aspects will provide an opportunity for reflection for a building type that still requires many studies and contributions to improve.
