    Drama Theatre in prison, there is a very successful experiment carried out in the Prison of Volterra, Italy.
    The experiment which may be referred to as ‘drama therapy’ has been such a success in Volterra that it has been exported to the jail of Roumieh, a village north-east of Beirut in Lebanon, which is an absolute novelty for a prison in the Arabic world.
    In 2000, a protocol agreement was signed between the justice ministry, the penitentiary administration department, the region of Tuscany, the province of Pisa, the Volterra city council and the board of Italian theatres, for the establishment of the Centro Nazionale Teatro e Carcere.
