Constitutional Justice In Italy And Beyond: A Comparative (And Private) Law Perspective
This article takes a comparative law perspective to examine a series of issues that, through the lense of the recently published book ‘Italian Constitutional Justice in Global Context, appear to be closely interconnected. It starts with a survey of the overall global circulation of Italian legal models. Secondly, it focuses on the general features and inner limits of so-called global constitutionalism. Thirdly, it addresses the interactions at work in a civil jurisdiction between the Constitutional Court and the other domestic, European and Western legal formants. The final part of the paper chooses private law as a litmus test to review the practical dimension of the above-mentioned interactions.
