Taralli handmade by prisoners and ex-prisoners - diocesan project "Without bars"

Terre Di Puglia

Labor and manual labor as the key to redemption. This is the result of the Diocesan project "𝐒𝐞𝐧𝐳𝐚 𝐒𝐛𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐞" which from Andria, in Puglia, creates a new perspective for prisoners and former prisoners, through an artisan workshop engaged in the creation of one of the most representative products of the territory: the Taralli. The San Vittore farm, the place where the project was born, also exports an innovative model of detention that focuses on the recovery of people through craftsmanship. Thus was born "A free hand, an important team work that gives life to a great change in social responsibility", as recalled by Don Riccardo Agresti and Don Vincenzo Giannelli, founders of the project. Terre di Puglia supports this new challenge, with the aim of raising awareness among the community in considering prisoners as useful subjects and still an active part of the Company. We will use our commercial resources to ensure that even the Senza Sbarre taralli have a shelf allocation on the market we preside over both in Italy but also abroad where we are present in 25 countries.

The project was also presented at the 92nd international session of the "European Youth Parliament", the largest network of young people in Europe which aims to bring its members closer to European institutions and policies. Within this setting, the taralli of "Without Bars" are proposed as a symbol of social sustainability, quality and value. Collaboration, redemption and rebirth, objectives that become prospects for a new tomorrow for those who thought they could no longer reach that tomorrow and finally look to a new future… WITHOUT BARRIERS.
