"The prisoners have lived the experience in a positive way and the guests were able, with the help of these new friends, to create a musical instrument, beautiful and alive. The result is a unique experience and touching, and of this we thank the Association and the director Of Gregory for helping us to make it happen. Each barrier or prison of physical, mental and social can be overcome together in solidarity in a common project."

The Association In Work was founded by the Sixth Opera on the 25th June 2016 and over 2017, has become operational within the Prison of Opera, Milan, with the objective of promoting pathways to volunteering, even outside, for the people that are currently admitted, or are in the legal conditions for the admission to the external work. In short, it is an experience of "restorative justice" - the most innovative thinking about the composition of the conflict between the State, the offender and the victim - that has the aim of offering a contribution, and a path to repair the social damage caused to the community through work projects, socially useful and voluntary. A justice that focuses on the person, in the threefold form of the victim, guilty and corrupted, and whose cornerstone is the protection of the personal dignity.
