In October 2011, the protestors — currently aged between 28 and 37 — set an armoured Carabinieri police vehicle on fire and pummelled its driver with sticks.
The six protestors were charged with aggravated assault against a police representative, resisting arrest and vandalism.
Their lawyers denounced the jail terms as severe and said they would appeal.
