Among the signatories there were also representatives of institutions and associations, namely Federico Cafiero De Raho, National Anti-Mafia and Anti-Terrorism Prosecutor; Giovanni Bombardieri, Prosecutor at the Court of Reggio Calabria; Roberto Di Bella, President of the Juvenile Court of Reggio Calabria; Giuseppina Latella, Prosecutor at the Juvenile Court of Reggio Calabria; and Luigi Ciotti, President of Libera.

The agreement aims to offer educational, psychological, economic and labor support to minors and their families, living in organized crime contexts in the province of Reggio Calabria.

"The fight against crime is articulate," the minister added, "and it is the duty of the State to recreate the conditions which will enable to allow all young people to develop».
