Can the listening of instrumental music be used as a tool to treat social and psychological distress? This short paper suggests a positive answer to this question using specific protocol and providing the correct support on music listening. We report principal results of a three years experimental project, named CO2 (acronym for “hate control” in Italian language), realized in four prison in Italy. The experimental protocol was composed in several action, but we can summarize it in three main action: 1) creation of an hardware platform and audiotheque to make possible the listening to music for detainees included in the projects, 2) specific course to teach the correct way to listen to music conducted by top professional musician, 3) administration of standardized questionnaire at the end of every session of listening, psychological individual and group observation, collection of qualitative documents of listening’s evaluation written by detainees. At the end of experimental period we can point out some important changes in behavior of detainees includes in particular in terms of communication ability and self-assessment of their emotive status. This could represents a very useful asset for usual re-educative paths offering a new tool and helping to treat the emotional sphere of distress.
