REBIBBIA PRISON, PRISONERS ON STAGE
Rebibbia, Italy's largest high-security prison, houses convicts with lengthy jail terms.
Mafia members, criminals, and traffickers, most of them never entered a theatre. However, a performance hall, quite unusual in a prison facility, welcomes them three times a week to introduce them to this art.
A woman, Laura Andreini Salerno, convinced them to leave their cells for a unique experience: to put together a play they will perform in a few months in front of their fellow inmates and wardens.
