Italian term or phrase:galera
The punishment for
I colpevoli furono condannati al patibolo della forca, alla galera e all'oscuro carcere.
There is a definition of galera as a form of punishment in De Mauro online: pena assegnata ai colpevoli di delitti capitali che consisteva nell’assegnazione ai remi di tali navi.
Has anyone ever heard of this type of punishment and what it would be called in English? Thanks for your time.
