On The Constitutional Reform In The Process Of Being Approved In Italy
The essay analyses the impact of the constitutional reform recently proposed by the Italian Government, focusing especially on the relationships between the State and the regions. Comparing the reform of 2014 with that of 2001 the author underlines the statist imprint, which derives from a widespread opinion about the unsatisfactory performance of regional governments and the scarcity of the contribution of regional legislation to the overall innovation of our country. In this perspective, the article lists the most salient points of the new text and criticises their implications not only for Regional legislative powers, but also for the entire legislative process.
