The theme will be explored through two main points: firstly, a brief historical overview of the significance of specific premises within prison facilities, with particular attention to their evolution over time and in response to sociocultural changes. Secondly, the discussion will centre on the case study of San Vittore in Milan, extensively analysed by the Prison Laboratory group in their research activities. The ongoing project has emphasized the necessity of developing tailored architectural design processes to enhance the connection within the prison and to define new relationships between the places of detention and the city.
