ANTIGONE (Rome, Italy)

Antigone, an association "for rights and guarantees in the penal system", was born at the end of the 1980s.

It is a political-cultural association that mainly involves magistrates, prison workers, academics, parliamentarians, teachers and citizens who are in some way interested in criminal justice.

In particular, Antigone promotes debates on the model of criminal and procedural legality in our country and its evolution; it collects and disseminates information about the prison situation, as well as the constant reading of the relationship between the law and its implementation.

Antigone deals with the preparation of legislative proposals and the definition of amendments to proposals in the process of approval; it promotes information and awareness campaigns on particular topics, always related to the legal aspect of our country, also through the quarterly magazine Antigone.
