The same punishment shall apply to anyone who, also outside the modalities set out in the first paragraph, engages in the conduct referred to therein against a person under the age of 18.

The member of the crew of a national or foreign ship destined, prior to departure or in the course of navigation, to be trafficked shall be punished, even if he has not committed any of the acts provided for in the first or second paragraph or of trading in slaves, with imprisonment from three to ten years.
Criminalization of trafficking victims:
No, victims of trafficking are not criminalized. The law protects them. Victims of trafficking can be granted a special residence permit for social protection’s reasons in order to facilitate victims in escaping the violence (Article 18 Testo Unico sull’Immigrazione).
