[Autom. eng. transl.] Every legal system, if it wants to be truly human-scale, must understand the intrinsically narrative nature of the human, of our being narrators and listeners of stories by vocation: only through this reconciliation with the mutability of existence is it possible to maintain stability and coherence of the rules but at the same time fully meet the demand for justice of human society. It is here that the need arises for an always open dialogue between law and literature, essential for all those who contribute in various capacities to the administration of justice: magistrates, lawyers, but also ordinary citizens. This volume summarizes the great adventure that arose from such an awareness and which the "Federico Stella" High School on Criminal Justice underwent over the course of almost fifteen years with the 'Justice and Literature' project. The agile informative essays that compose it illustrate some of the works and literary fields explored during this long journey, from Manzoni to Sciascia, from Shakespeare to Steinbeck, from the great literary canon to qualified genre works, with forays into detective stories and in science fiction.
