Abstract

The issue of the treatment of sexual offender in order to fight his recidivism is a main topic of the debate of criminological and psychological sciences. This issue has concerned the criminal justice system especially in pursuing more effective repression; on the contrary the concern about care and treatment mostly remained on the background. The dangerousness, that seems to connote sex offenders, has indeed prompted the law giver, and not only the italian one, towards a policy of improvement of criminal penalties for such crimes and, on the front of the incapacitation measures, of impoverishment of the possible therapeutic contents. In Italy the experiences of a rehabilitation-oriented execution are few.
