On the Edge of Penal Colonies: Castiadas (Sardinia) and the “Redemption” of the Land

Si segnala la pubblicazione dell’articolo di Francesca Di Pasquale, On the Edge of Penal Colonies: Castiadas (Sardinia) and the “Redemption” of the Land, in «International Review of Social History», Volume 64, Issue 3, Special Theme “Dissecting Sites of Punishment: Penal Colonies and Their Borders”, eds. by Francesca Di Pasquale, Zhanna Popova, 2019, pp. 427-444.

Abstract:

The article analyses the development of agricultural penal colonies in Italy, focusing on their margins and borders. The first section focuses on Italy’s frontier with overseas territories that was assumed in discussion of the location of penal colonies following Italian unification. The article also highlights some of the factors behind the effective lack of deportation and transportation of Italians overseas. The second section explores Italy’s largest agricultural penal colony, Castiadas, in Sardinia and, more generally, the borders between convicts and free citizens and between penal territory and free territory. My thesis is that penal colonies were partly designed to discipline populations in adjacent territories and that their economic and social organization served as a development model for rural Italy more widely.

Dissecting Sites of Punishment: Penal Colonies and Their Borders

Si segnala la pubblicazione del dossier monografico curato da Francesca Di Pasquale, Zhanna Popova, Dissecting Sites of Punishment: Penal Colonies and Their Borders, in «International Review of Social History», Volume 64, Issue 3, 2019.

Abstract:

Although a crucial element of imperial architecture, non-metropolitan penal colonies remain relatively understudied, compared with the richness of historical scholarship on modern prison systems in Western Europe and its offshoots. Complementing the perspective chosen in the recent International Review of Social History Special Issue 26, “Transportation, Deportation and Exile: Perspectives from the Colonies in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries”, the four articles in this Special Theme propose an additional angle of investigation of the role of convicts in the incorporation of new territories into colonial empires. The authors place sites of punishment, rather than flows of convicts, at the core of their reflection, and provide a close-up analysis of circulations of information and people across the borders of penal sites on various scales: local, trans-regional, and international. They problematize the notion of “border”, and consider it as a vantage point that leads to a new conceptualization of the penal colony as a system that expands in its surroundings and, in turn, assimilates external political, social, and economic stimuli. Relying on several distinct methodological approaches, the authors foreground the specificities of colonial punishment and demonstrate how punishment became part of the creation and maintenance of power inequalities between the colonies and the metropoles.

The “Other” at Home: Deportation and Transportation of Libyans to Italy During the Colonial Era (1911–1943)

Si segnala la pubblicazione di Francesca Di Pasquale, The “Other” at Home: Deportation and Transportation of Libyans to Italy During the Colonial Era (1911–1943), in «International Review of Social History», Volume 63, Special Issue (Transportation, Deportation and Exile: Perspectives from the Colonies in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries), 2018, pp. 211-231

Abstract:

This article analyses the practices of deportation and transportation of colonial subjects from Libya, Italy’s former possession, to the metropole throughout the entire colonial period (1911–1943). For the most part, the other colonial powers did not transport colonial subjects to Europe. Analysing the history of the punitive relocations of Libyans, this article addresses the ways in which the Italian case may be considered peculiar. It highlights the overlapping of the penal system and military practices and emphasizes the difficult dialogue between “centre” and “periphery” concerning security issues inside the colony. Finally, it focuses on the experience of the Libyans in Italy and shows how the presence there of colonial subjects in some respects overturned the “colonial situation”, undermining the relationship of power between Italians and North Africans.

Carceri a Bologna in Età napoleonica

Si segnala la pubblicazione dell’articolo di  Maria Romana Caforio, Carceri a Bologna in Età napoleonica, in «Storia Urbana: rivista di studi sulle trasformazioni della città e del territorio in età moderna», n. 152/153, 2016, pp. 37-57.

Abstract:

L’arrivo dei francesi a Bologna, nel giugno del 1796, comportò l’avvio di un processo di ammodernamento delle istituzioni di giustizia e di polizia che per secoli avevano regolato la vita cittadina. Incisivi interventi riguardarono anche la rete reclusiva esistente, realizzata tra Sei e Settecento, inclusa all’interno del progetto di rinnovamento delle strutture statuali promosso dal nuovo governo. Il tema, sinora rimasto ai margini del dibattito storiografico, costituisce l’oggetto del presente contributo. Esso si propone di indagare in un’ottica comparativa i capisaldi teorici e i risultati della politica carceraria messa a punto nella città dalle autorità napoleoniche nell’arco di un quindicennio. L’analisi di un’eterogenea documentazione archivistica ha permesso di appurare come, a Bologna, la sostituzione dei vecchi luoghi d’internamento con stabilimenti deputati a specifiche categorie di trasgressori fu dettata non solo da un nuovo modo di intendere i rapporti tra Stato, legge e comunità, ma anche da precise esigenze di un più stretto controllo sociale e di uniformità amministrativa. Parti integranti di un sistema penitenziario esteso a tutti i territori della penisola, le prigioni cittadine furono organizzate secondo un modello centralizzato e teso allo sfruttamento del lavoro coatto, destinato da un lato al fallimento e dall’altro a essere rivisitato negli anni successivi alla Restaurazione pontificia, nel contesto di un programma di rinnovamento degli organismi preposti alla tutela sociale e privata.

The French conquest of Bologna, in June 1796, inaugurated a modernization of the judiciary, and of the police institutions that regulated civic life for centuries. In renovating State structures, the new government also acted upon the network of prisons that was already in place, which had been organized throughout the 1600s and 1700s. This subject, which has remained at the margins of scholarly debate so far, stands at the core of this essay. The essay aims at investigating, in a comparative perspective, the theory and practice of prison policies as they were planned and enforced by the Napoleonic authorities in the course of fifteen years. The analysis of a very diverse group of archival materials makes it possible to establish that, in Bologna, traditional sites of internment were substituted with new ones, thought to host specific categories of lawbreakers. I argue that this was not dictated only by a new understanding of the relation between State, law and community, but also by a distinct need for increased social control and administrative uniformity. Civic prisons were the building blocks of a prison system that was extended to Napoleonic Italy in its entirety. They functioned following a centralized model, with the objective of exploiting bonded labour. On the one hand, the model failed. On the other hand, however, after Bologna’s return under Papal rule, it inspired new programmes of private and social protection.

Assistenza e controllo sociale a Bologna tra Antico regime ed Età napoleonica

Si segnala la pubblicazione dell’articolo di  Maria Romana Caforio, Assistenza e controllo sociale a Bologna tra antico regime ed Età napoleonica. L’Opera pia dei Mendicanti, in «Proposte e ricerche»,
XXXVII, n. 73, 2014, pp. 67-79.

Abstract:

Very few studies have been conducted on the strategies of social control in Bologna between the XVIII and the Napoleonic Era. This paper aims to fill the gap by focusing on the Opera Pia dei Mendicanti, a charity foundation for orphan, prostitutes, offenders and people with mental disability. Based on a wide range of archive records, the analysis reconstructs the purposes of the institution, the social actors involved, the management of reclusive spaces as well as internal regulations. The research points out the role of the Opera Pia within the social and economic local context, identifying continuities and discontinuities between the Ancién Regim and the French domination, in order to evaluate its impact on the individuals and on the territory as a whole.
