The origins and development of the research project which led to the publication of “Giustizia e letteratura – I” are explained. This foreword also provides the reader with some methodological indications regarding both the structure of the book, and the different possible ways to read and consult it. Basic keys for a better comprehension of the text are provided, together with highlights on the contents of the volume, and on the intertwining of core topics, such as causes and harms of crime; victimization and coping mechanisms; the role of criminal law and criminal proceedings; juridical formalism and equity; law and ethics; responsibility, culpability and forgiveness; rules, legality, socialization and culture; the value of narration as a strategy to resist injustice and to seek justice; the impact of prejudices in the application of the law; retributive and utilitarian approaches to sanctioning; restorative justice; and many more.
