Naples, signed agreement between the Navy and the Juvenile Justice Center for the Recovery of Minors with a criminal record

“We are convinced that the values ​​of the sea, maritime culture, nautical traditions are truly a way to keep children as far off the road as possible and to give them a sense of honor and ethics. With this kind of Education will surely get the boys out of this dilemma into which they have fallen in spite of themselves. ”They are the words of hope ofChief Inspector Admiral Giuseppe AbbamonteLogistics Commander of the Navy, on the occasion of the signing of first agreement between the Navy and the Juvenile Justice Center of Campania which defines the beginning of Training courses that may favor the rehabilitation and integration of minors who have entered the criminal circuit or are at risk of deviation. To sign the agreement representing the structure of the Ministry of Justice Giuseppe CentomaniDirector of Department of Juvenile and Community Justice for the Campania Region. The signing ceremony was held in one of the magnificent state halls of the Palace of the Admiralty of Naples. The agreement was reached a few months after the signing of the protocol last March 31 in Rome between the Navy and the Juvenile Justice and Community Department of the Ministry of Justice, signed by Navy Chief of Staff, Admiral Enrico Credendino. Head of the Juvenile Justice and Community Department, Dr. Gemma Tuccillo.

A project that concerns the Navy a lot, underlines Admiral Abbamonte: “A very important signature for us in the Navy, for the social activity we carry out and I would say for the city. The purpose of this agreement is, a Enable synergy between the Navy and the Department of Justice for the recovery of children who have entered the penal system, their tests and the opportunity to learn an art, especially that of wood restoration.a vintage ship.For maritime culture “In this way, to fit in better with the sails and values ​​of the sea. In this way, to fit into a healthier, more honest environment and to emerge from the phenomena of youth violence in which they have unfortunately ceased.” Navy in social recovery activities begins by far following the latest directives Chief of Staff Enrico Credendinoexplains Abbamonte. “This – he concludes – is a small drop in the ocean that we are happy to launch and we hope the city collects it and that it will bear fruit in a short time.”

There will be a dozen minors and training projects in the field of the various professions associated with the world of the sea, high spending on the labor market. The first implementation agreement will be the seat of influence Marina di Naples Headquartered in Via Acton, in which an educational activity will be carried out, starting in the coming months, which will engage young people to learn the art of restoring vintage boats and other wood artifacts. The aim, and therefore the importance, of this project was explained in detail by the Head of the Campaign Region of the Department of Juvenile Justice One hundred tomorrowNaples was the promoter of this idea National Protocol: now we are signing a local protocol that specifically states how to translate the national one at the local level. We will have a training activity for the children, but also a professional orientation as well as pedagogical tutoring. The key is not simply to teach children to do something material. The important thing is that with tutoring and pedagogical support, they develop a different idea of ​​themselves as active citizens and as workers. This is the goal and the true revolution we want to trigger in their lives. If we physically teach them to do something, but the idea of ​​how they will live remains the same, we lose time and money ». So, what better context than that of the Marine Crew? “The work on the craft of the sea – Centomani insists – gives excellent results in different neighborhoods, such as in Puglia and Sicily. It is a work that the boys are passionate about and that allows them to gain experience as a crew. A special pedagogical context because the crew is a team, something where everyone must have everyone’s responsibility and everyone’s everyone’s responsibility, in this way the children learn that there is a consequence to their operational capacity and the Practice or not, their level of responsibility. “A model that picks up that of the Caracciolo asylum ship, which attracted followers around the world in the early 20th century through the educational methods of its founder Giulia Civita Franceschi.” From this point of view, adds Centomani besides – we did not invent anything: the Navy and the Ministry of Justice have been collaborating for centuries, starting with the “Caracciolini”. In the early 20th century, the Navy provided former warships for the construction of playschools on ships, where street children were collected and led to the activity of seafarers. Our project is modern but has its origins in the past ”. But by what criteria are the “difficult” young people selected? “These are young people from the penitentiary, not necessarily in prison. We have a numerical ratio between the children who are actually imprisoned and those who we manage to pursue in the territory from 70 to 2500. We can therefore welcome in our formations the children who are in prison at Nisida or Airola. But in reality, we are mainly targeting young people who have alternative precautionary measures or non-behavioral tests, ”the Prime Minister explained. “The interesting thing – he concludes – is that our group of young people can ‘mix’ up: not only in the penitentiary, but also young people who are coming through difficulties. and we will integrate them into our working groups.The groups will never be more than 5-6 boys because they are more like this at all.We will make some modules with this quantity so that our tutors can open them up educational level can engage and make a way with them who are able to change their perspective on life in the community to which they belong deeply.

The possibility of a collaboration with the commune has the applause ofCounselor for Youth Policy and Employment Chiara Marciani who, present at the signing ceremony, commented on the initiative as follows: “We are very grateful to the Navy and the Juvenile Justice Center for creating this project. We hope to actively pursue him, so that not only the young people who are already involved in a criminal way, but also the young people from our city get this chance. It has an important history that comes from an ancient training ship; therefore we hope that for many young people in our town it can be a prospect for the future ”. On the numbers that see an alarming rate of early school exchanges, especially in the suburbs, Marciani announces the birth of a project for a “network of institutions, not just public, that cares for children.” “Every boy – so Marciani continues – should have a kind of tutor who can pursue him and ensure that he can continue his path not only in school but also in education so that he can be deployed in the world of work. and enjoy the opportunities that early school leavers are unable to have “.
