This study aims to present how restorative justice is applied in the context of the Italian legislature through a case
study. In particular, the relationship between a judge of the Juvenile Court, the local Social Services and the drug addiction
service is presented. After a brief presentation of the history of Italian juvenile justice and a comment on the current model
of juvenile justice, a number of critical issues, organisational and technical, will be analysed. From this, the need to renew
some local services will emerge, in relation to the cultural and judicial approach to minor offenders.
