"I will certainly take one thing out of here: instead of counting to 3, I will count to 10 before doing something"

In Italy there are more than 300 youngsters under 25 detained in juvenile hall.

A difficult family situation and a social context characterized by illegality are often the conditions underlying the juvenile delinquency.

Isolated from the world in the blush of youth, the boys of Nisida, Naples’ juvenile prison located on the homonymous island, have the chance to change their lives trough a cutting-edge re-education policy that includes a close contact with nature of the place.
