Change at the top of the Dap, the Department that administers prisons.
Justice Minister Carlo Nordio is preparing to appoint the prosecutor of the national anti-mafia and anti-terrorism prosecutor Giovanni Russo as head of the Dap, a post held up to now by Carlo Renoldi, who had been chosen by minister Marta Cartabia.
Russo's name had been circulating for days among the penitentiary police unions, but now the CSM has received an official request to place him out of office, an essential prerequisite for him to be able to take on the new position.
Since 2016, the magistrate has been an assistant prosecutor in the office directed by Giovanni Melillo and for a few months he was its regent after the retirement of his predecessor Federico Cafiero De Raho.
Before arriving in via Giulia, he worked at the Naples prosecutor's office.
So today there was what was probably Carlo Renoldi's last public outing as head of the Dap.
And perhaps it is no coincidence that the Minister of Justice Nordio, present at the initiative - a conference linked to the ANSA exhibition on Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino 30 years after the 1992 massacres - wanted to address a public appreciation to the head of the Dap on the day of the appointment of his successor.
"First of all - the minister began - I would like to thank my extraordinary collaborator Carlo Renoldi, whose work is invaluable and has been particularly effective in humanizing the prison system. A thank you that comes from the depths of my soul"
