In an art project aptly titled, "Doing Time," inmates at Rebibbia prison in Rome are manufacturing modern clocks. The clocks, designed by Sara Ferrari, are made by the prisoners in the long sentence department and use waste from Italy's leather factories. They will be sold through the Artwo gallery, with proceeds going to the prisoners and Ferrari.
