Source: (2004) Final Transnational Seminar of the Project M.E.D.I.A.Re (Mutual Exchange of Data and Information About Restorative Justice), Ministry of Justice of Italy, Department of Penitentiary Administration. Rome, June 18-19. Downloaded 26 September 2005.

In perspective, the project intends to give a contribution to the
spreading of the already existing legislation and application
instruments, and it also aims at proposing suggestions and spurs
for comparison with what has been carried out in the partner
Countries. The Italian Penitentiary Administration intends to
contribute, through this publication, to the spreading of the judicial
culture in the penal mediation and intends to accept the proposal,
which was made in the course of the project activities, to draft a
plan for the training of the penitentiary staff, which could be open
also to the local bodies workers. Such training shall aim at
teaching the knowledge and the skills necessary to the workers in
order to manage the issues relevant to the treatment of the
convicted prisoners, so that they may lead the inmates to think
about their unlawful behaviour, about the motivation and the
consequences of their crime, in order for them to put into practice
possible restorative behaviours, and in order to strengthen their
path of social rehabilitation. (excerpt)
