Abstract

Photographs of Turin’s prison ‘Le Nuove


Photographs of the inside of Turin’s prison ‘Le Nuove’, which served as the city of Turin’s main prison from 1870 to 1986. From 1986 to 2004 it was still used as a women’s prison and as a place where prisoners in partial custody went to sleep at night. The photographs document the path of a spontaneous tour through the building that is run by ex partisans and their family members, who want visitors to remember the years in which the prison was under Nazi control (1943-1945) in certain parts of the building the volunteer tour guides set up a shrine with photographs of those partisans who were executed by the Nazis. The basement cells where the main shrine is were also used as punishment cells for unruly inmates well into the 1970s. There are also photographs of the unique panoptical chapel designed by the 19th century architect Pollani so as to solve the problem of taking prisoners to attend mass while maintaining the system of total isolation practiced in the prison until the end of the Second World War : prisoners were escorted to tiny cells from which they could attend the mass through barred windows and they were locked in for the duration of the service. Then, one by one, they would be taken back to their cells.Dr Eleanor Chiari's photographs of Turin's prison 'Le Nuove'.
