Rome puts prisoners to work on the city's roads.
Prisoners from Rome's Rebibbia prison will be put to work fixing the city's pot-holed roads as part of an agreement between the capital, Italy's justice ministry and the road authorities Altantia and Autostrade per l'Italia.
Under the title Mi riscatto per Roma (I redeem myself for Rome), the programme will begin in September and will initially involve 15 inmates, rising eventually to 50, all selected on the grounds of being at low risk and serving short-term jail sentences.
The prisoners will undergo a road-repair training programme, on completion of which they will receive a certificate, and the first roadworks will be in the area around Rebibbia prison.
