Abstract

The criminal asylums as a symbolic form - The Government of madness is always a matter primarily of spaces. The most extreme of these places – the one that was born in Italy in the last quarter of the Nineteenth century as “criminal asylums” – is hit by an ambiguous deposition process. However, any changes interest these symbolic forms, these places of confinement of non-we, cannot assume than a margins redefinition of social sense and no-sense, another segmentation of human thresholds and a remodulation of the orders of the hierarchy. The fate of these marginal spaces maintains, then, the codes of the next experience of social order and its control to come.
