[Autom. eng. transl.] The victim-centric perspective has established itself first and foremost internationally thanks to a series of acts, in particular Conventions. These acts have highlighted the need for an approach to the criminal phenomenon attentive to the rights of the victim in general, and, above all, of the victim with particular protection needs, the so-called vulnerable victim. Even the national legislator has been sensitive to these needs, introducing important reforms in both the substantive and the procedural law. However, this paradigm shift on the victim front is not without its pitfalls, if it is accompanied by visions, which, as exasperatedly victim-centric, are aimed at legitimizing punitive security policies of an illiberal type. Policies, that is, which put the reasons of public security before those constitutionally founded guaranteeing the perpetrator of the crime.
