Despite the strong and enduring demand for improvement of their living conditions, prisons are an emblematic example of situations that are inert to transformation. In the face of this contradiction, experimenting with new design methods is utterly urgent. This article proposes some possible paths, through a self- reflective reading of an experience that was carried out ‘in the field’. Being mainly located in the Bollate prison, the experimentation concerned the creation of new spaces and equipment for sports activities. The explored tools attempt to combine, in a constructive manner, transformative and processual dimensions, through social interaction with the various actors involved.
