Torto. An unfinished exploratory quest about Bolzano’s Casa Circondariale.
What is a prison? How does it work? Our journey towards the MA’s thesis proposal began with two questions. Now, after a semester spent interviewing, reading, mapping, collecting thoughts on the kitchen’s walls and questioning our own values and ambitions, we have many more. What if the prison becomes a place where real knowledge, skills and concepts are built? What if our own experience, situated in a local context, grows into an open model able to trigger further development and discussion? What if the knowledge generated through design processes contributes to the development of alternative models of segregation, punishment and, eventually, education?
