In the last few months characterized by educational and working activities in ‘remote’, the educational programs in penitentiary institutions have been deeply injured and ignored by the media and the general public. Like the majority of people in the whole world, also the prison population has endured a strong deprivation of contact, which has been particularly dramatic and confusing in a life condition with a temporary or permanent deprivation of freedom. In this particular historical period there is the need for actions for the penitentiary population, which should be planned and accomplished with the aim to guarantee the continuity of social-educational activities provided by the law and all the opportunities granted to the civil society, such as distance learning and education. The lack of such actions together with the consequences of a prolongued isolation can be a deep damage for the imprisoned individual and a limitation of his rights, according to which the aim of imprisonement is mainly the re-education.
