This contribution describes and analyses how public prosecutors offices choose which crimes to pursue, even if the italian law provides for the mandatory prosecution. It explores how both the rise of a new managerial justice, the crisis of the paradigm of judicial ritual and the definition of new criteria of accountability of justice place prosecution at a key point between claim of justice, people fears and efficiency.

It explores how both the rise of a new managerial justice, the crisis of the paradigm of judicial ritual and the definition of new criteria of accountability of justice place prosecution at a key point between claim of justice, people fears and efficiency.
