Abstract

By the end of the 19th century, public and scientific authorities had reported an explosion in juvenile delinquency worldwide. The phenomenon caused such a great alarm that it was described as the most urgent social issue. The study of juvenile offenders became the main laboratory for the definition of a new relationship between the state and families. Collected mainly at the archives of Perugia and Rome, the essay examines internment practices based on art. 222 of the Pisanelli civil code (1865) because they reveal the complex dynamics that characterized the definition of social citizenship in Italy from the end of the 19th century to fascism.
