The Times reports on an Italian cooperative known as Project Alice that is teaching rehabilitation to inmates in Milanese prisons through the art of fashion design.

‘Rehabilitation in Italy comes in a fashionable form, you see. You may be
serving 15 years for murder but that’s no reason to let standards slip.
Female inmates at this Milanese secure unit have the option to take a course
in fashion design. Last week they held a fashion show in the prison grounds
to show off creations by Alberta Ferretti and Pollini, and are set to
collaborate with major Italian designers such as Anna Molinari of Blumarine’.
