Italy: prison population and capacity 2018, by gender In 2018, the operational capacity of Italian prisons was of about 50 thousand inmates. However, in the year considered, there were roughly 60 thousand prisoners incarcerated in all Italian penal institutions, almost ten thousand more than the operational capacity.
