THE NOMINATION OF THE VINYARD LANDSCAPE OF SOUTHWESTERN PIEMONTE AS “TERRITORY OF WORLD HERITAGE”: SHORT NOTES ON THE PROTECTION OF RURAL LANDSCAPE
by Roberta Lombardi
The nomination from UNESCO of the Piemonte vinyards landscape as “territory of world heritage”, is the starting point of this article. From there, the article moves to more general considerations on the notion of “landscape” and the juridic implications of its protection, with particular focus on the issue of the defense and development of rurallandscape.
THE FAILURE OF SPECIAL REGIONALISM
by Simone Pajno
The aim of this essay is to briefly deal with the role of the category of regions usually called “Regioni Speciali”. In section 2 I study the reasons at the ground of “special regionalism”. Section 3 describes the most important features of the “real life” of the Regioni speciali, and of Regione siciliana in particular. This kind of Regions never enjoyed the special treatment one could infer from the constitutional text. Section 4 will hold the importance of fiscal federalism. In section 5 I attempt to offer a comprehensive reading of the shape that l. cost. 3/2001 gave to the Italian system. The main idea is that the constitutional reform determined the fall of the State’s superiority. The key-words I use to explain this point of view are “pluralismo istituzionale paritario” (that can be translated as “equal institutional pluralism”) and “sussidiarietà” (subsidiarity). Of course, subsidiarity is a well-known concept in political and legal studies. The thesis I try to draw is that in this context the role of the “statute speciali” is significantly different from before. They now have to offer the tools to make the democracy in “Regioni speciali” more profound. They have not to be used to build boundaries between the general legal order and the regional one.
CONTEMPORARY LEGAL POSITIVISM’S “CONVENTIONALIST TURN”: A CRITICAL OUTLINE
by Aldo Schiavello
The target of this paper is to analyze legal positivism’s conventionalist turn with regard to the topic of legal obligation and legal normativity. The conclusions aims to shed light on some deep limits of this kind of legal positivism. In short, conventionalism has two options, both of them unsatisfying. The first one – chosen, among others, by Herbert Hart – proposes a “weak” version of conventionalism; this strategy is losing in so far as does not allow to distinguish legal obligation from moral obligation. The second option – sketched out by authors like Chaim Gans and Gerald Postema – supports a “strong” version of conventionalism which offers a coherent model of legal obligation but at cost of misrepresenting the law.
THE NATIONAL SOLIDARITY FOUND: FISCAL AND LEGAL ASPECTS
by Salvatore Di Gregorio
The contribution that the State, yearly, is obliged to pay to the Sicilian region, as National Solidarity, disciplined by the article 38 of the Sicilian Statute is finalized to balance the difference of income between the Sicily and the national average.The essay outlines a synthesis, about more of 60 years of application of the institute of the “National Solidarity”, in Sicilian Region, examining financial and juridical aspects.Under the financial profile, are dealt the aspects related to the different levels of assigned resources and to the typology of the activated interventions. Under the juridical profile, are dealt the application aspects in relationship to the sentences of the Constitutional Court, but, above all, the possible developments of the institute with the achievement of the fiscal federalism in Italy.The essay specifically draws a general picture of the national normative that, subsequently, have disciplined the assignments of the funds to Sicily, as National Solidarity, from 1952 up to the 2007 financial law; it also examines the aspects of the State power to set limits to the use of the funds. A particular chapter is dedicated to the methods of employment of the resources, of which are analyzed the priorities, the criterions and the sectors of action. It is also, specifically, analyzed, the jurisprudence of the constitutional Court on the matter and the useful remarks, in subject, from the “Brancasi Commission” on the financial contentious between the State and the Sicilian Region. The analysis examines, besides, the relationship between the application of the article 38 of the Sicilian Statute and the reform of the title V of the Italian Constitution, comparing the constitutional discipline (particularly the article 119) and the statutory discipline. Finally the work dedicates a specific reflections to the connections between the sicilian institute of National Solidarity
and the theme on fiscal incentives and the public aids, in E.U.
SOME CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING THE AGREEMENTS STIPULATED ON 4 APRIL 2007 CARRIED OUT BY ART.8.3 OF THE CONSTITUTION AND ABOUT THEIR NON-APPROVAL
by Anna Sveva Mancuso
A radical change of the composition of the population from a religious point of view emerged in the last twenty years of the twentieth century in Italy together with the late unsettled realization of the instrument of agreements with the non-catholic denominations provided by art. 8.3 of the Constitution. We must reflect about continuing to go along with the path traced by the constituents or find other solutions to answer the even more insistent requests made by the large number of religious groups in the country, which are still subject to the obsolete provisions of 1929-1930. The agreements stipulated by Prodi’s Government on April 2007 and their failure made evident by the fact that after two years, six of these are still waiting to be presented to Parliament by the Government for approval, show what it is that went wrong and what should be done to modernize the relations between the State and the religious minorities respecting the principles of equal freedom, present in the 3° subsection of art.8 Cost., which should be the main rule of Italian ecclesiastic law.
THE EU BLUE CARD: AN UPDATED POLICY OF THE MIGRANT GUEST-WORKER
by Marco Evola
The Council adopted the Directive 2009/50 on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country highly skilled workers on the 25th May 2009. The Directive’s main purpose is setting up a procedure capable of responding promptly to fluctuating demands for migrant labour in the labour market. The achievement of this aim entails an high degree of harmonization in order to reduce the differences between national systems of recruitment and enhance the European internal market attractiveness as a whole, but the Directive does not achieve its goal because of the room left to States’ discretionary power and the way workers’ rights have been shaped. In fact the Directive is intended to control migration rather than to lure highly skilled workers, so that EU Blue Card holders represent a new figure of the migrant guest-workers.
“STEWARDS OF THE STADIUM, NEW EMPLOYEES TO SECURITY AND PUBLIC ORDER: THE PUBLIC OFFICIAL, PUBLIC SERVICE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR CONDUCTING A SERVICE OF PUBLIC NEED?”
by Paolo Garraffa
The paper is concerned to analyze, even critically, the discipline on the “stewards” of the stadiums. Starting with a brief historical reconstruction of the legislation on safety of sandblasting sports (which has since been recognized the need to resort to figures of this kind), it proceeds to reconstruct the stages on the evolution that has seen legislation introduced this figure into Italian. In the absence of their precise legal classification in the Italian law system, it tries to give an answer on that issue.
THE FAMILY REUNION BETWEEN MIGRATORY FLOWS AND PROTECTION OF FAMILY UNITY RIGHT
by Agata Anna Genna
This paper deals with the concept of right to family reunion, deriving from the case law of European Court of Justice and Italian Constitutional Court. First of all the relationship between the right to family reunion and migrants’ rights is analyzed. Then the right to family reunion is considered as it flows from EC Directive 2003/86/CE and, consequently, from the execution norms adopted by Italian Parliament. Afterwards the influence of EC law on the national legislation on family rights is examined. The conclusion is about the importance of guaranteing the free circulation of “family loves” bearing in mind the importance of the European integration and considering, on the other hand, the public order requirements.
IN HOUSE AND LOCAL COMMUNITY SERVICE: BRIEF STORY OF A MODEL CAPITOLATION
by Santi Delia
The Author briefly goes over the story of community service model management and the normative and jurisprudencial arrangements followed from the beginning of 1900: from Giolitti Law of 1903, to regulations scheme of wich at President of Republic Decree on the 26th of February 2009 provided by 23 bis article of decree n. 112/08, passed, with alteration, by the 6th of August 2008 n. 113 Law. The heart of the analysis is the dichotomy, always admitted by community and national jurisprudencial, between the choice of civil service for community service autoproduction and their outsourcing through the appeal of the market. The legislative evolution analysis showes as the present set-up, defined with the introduction of the 23 bis article of decree n. 112/08, brings to a drastic reduction of the effective choice possibility of Civil Service among the several management models admitted till now, forcing to choose for the so-called outsourching: the implementation of 23 bis article, in consideration of corroboration gained by local authority involved to accede to in house on Guarantor Authority of Competion and Market side, showes a real unworkability of the chose of services autoproduction on civil law side.
