Corporate globalisation is threatening the food rights of Indian people and the survival of its farmers.
InGalera, the first restaurant managed by prisoners opens in Milan
Un progetto unico in Italia, che apre la porte del carcere e offre opportunità di reinserimento dei detenuti. Oltre ad un menù tutto da provare.
There are four prisoners as waiters and five others cooking in the kitchen, headed by a professional chef and a maître external to the prison reality. This is the team that works in Italy’s first restaurant to be located in a prison. InGalera opened on 26 October at the II Casa di Reclusione of Milano Bollate, with a clear objective: following prisoners in a rehabilitation process of social inclusion.
The restaurant is a project of the co-operative ABC La Sapienza in Tavola and PwC, multinational operating in the field of corporate consultancy that played a crucial role in the organisation and funding phases.
“It is a ground-breaking project, made possible thanks to the collaboration with ABC. The co-operative was already working in the food industry, but it never managed to launch a restaurant,” said Francesco Ferrara, partner of PwC. “Thanks to the prison of Bollate, we succeeded in integrating 3 different worlds: prison, businesses, and education”. On this occasion, PwC managed the red tape and business plan, as well as engaged prisoners in training sessions.
InGalera is a real social experiment: for the first time ever, a prison opens its doors to people, allowing them to experience a too often distant and ignored reality. Moreover, it allows prisoners to be gradually included in the society.
“I really hope InGalera will become a credible and renowned brand and that it will be able to represent a crucial element in prisoners’ CVs, because too often society stigmatises them. I want to help fighting this stigma,” said Silvia Polleri, President of the co-operative ABC La Sapienza in Tavola.
50 seats, open at lunch and dinner, from Monday to Saturday. “We’d like this project to become replicable, because it has huge social benefits,” said Ferrara. “We hope it will be successful also in other prisons”.
