The work constitutes a critical presentation of the current face of Italian life imprisonment and of the measures operating in the phase of the enforcement of sentences which allow to declare its conformity with the Italian Constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights.
Analysing C. Musumeci-A. Pugiotto’s Gli ergastolani senza scampo (Editoriale Scientifica, Napoli, 2016), the Author elaborates a quaestio legitimitatis aimed at overcoming the so-called “no escape” life imprisonment. This is preceded by a brief introductory essay in which the proposals for the reform of life imprisonment are examined. Defence attorneys and judges will be able to use this act and solicit the judgment of the Constitutional Court.
