Fortezza Medicea Restaurant, Italy It is forbidden to bring cell phones and bags to jail. At the entrance, all visitors are searched using a metal search device. The visitors have a chance to attract a real prison form, which will make the impressions even sharper. The restaurant still has an important distinctive feature - all its staff consists exclusively of prisoners who are punished in the old prison. The prisoners cook the food for the visitors and serve them personally, some of them playing different musical instruments.
