Since 1930, when the code of criminal law presently in force was enacted, Italian sentencing system has been profoundly affected by many reforms. As a result, the whole system came under attack as being ineffective, uncertain, often having a merely symbolic function. The paper focuses on the reasons for the deception with the Italian criminal sanctioning system and on the solutions proposed to restore its credibility. One lesson that can be learned observing the Italian system in action is that any theoretical project, concerning sentencing and sentence execution, has always to take into serious consideration the political and economic commitment that a system is ready to offer in order to implement it.
