Description This contribution deals with Italian positivistic school of criminal law (scuola criminale positiva) and so-called criminal sociology and their impact on the development of criminal sanctions. In the beginning, it specifies roots, foundations and demands of this school and introduces the work of its most significant representative – Enrico Ferri. It analyses the importance and impacts of this approach’s teachings in relation to the classical school of criminal law reigning up to that time. It follows with an analysis of a historical development of protective measures on our territory and identifies the way in which the findings of positivistic school were reflected in it. At the end, it makes a summary of its findings and outlines hypotheses of why the Italian positivistic school has been abandoned by the first half of 20th century.
