After outlining the characteristics of the idea of community in postmodernity, the paper examines the role assumed by community in the world of crime and punishment. In the relationship with crime, the community is considered essentially on the level of criminogenesis, as a factor that can contribute to the production of the crime. In the relationship with punishment, the community plays a decisive role in the perspective of resocialising finalism, both at the ideological-political level and at the executive and penitentiary level.
