The Pastry of the Padua Prison, in a laboratory that is both a school of trade and life, has been operating within the Due Palazzi prison since 2005.
Since then, many meetings, visits and events have made us feel the affection of institutions, the public and industry critics, and the everyday life of a real job gives us the opportunity to change, every day, together.
We believe that an individual is not defined only by his error and that the commitment to work gives the opportunity to rediscover those personal resources that would otherwise remain dormant in inactivity.
We believe in work as a self-knowledge tool that offers opportunities for growth through the training and accompaniment of experienced professionals.
We believe in the work carried out with the rigor that pastry making science requires, in the precision of artisan methods, in study and in-depth analysis.
Sector studies reveal how prison work has multiple positive effects for the inmates themselves, for the prison and for society as a whole. Work acts as a normalizer of tensions, nourishes a positive vision of tomorrow, breaks the physical and mental routine. This translates into savings in medical and disciplinary costs and feeds a virtuous process that culminates in the lowering of the recidivism rate, or the probability of returning to a crime after serving the sentence.
