Museum of Le Nuove jail
Through the historical itinerary of the prison on Via Paolo Borsellino 3 in Turin you can discover the most hidden places where common men suffered in order to make Italy free and democratic, from the Unification to the beginning of the Third Millennium. Its architectural structure presents the individual segregation of the cells, the panopticon system of the first Rotunda, the only memory of the cubicles where the prisoners lived silently. It is a mirror of society that shows how is life without freedom in a cell. The museum recalls famous criminal events, stories of fascists, the last execution in Italy, the anti-fascist fights, the resistance in the notorious German first row, the attestation of the universal values in the cells of the men sentenced to death, the terrorism and the barbarian murder of four officers.
