Debate on the Constitutional Referendum
Aula Magna, Tribunal of Milan | Via Carlo Freguglia 1, Milan
The constitutional referendum is approaching. The arguments for Yes and No sometimes become confused, in the present context, with themes that deviate from the most completely technical aspects, and that will have important consequences on the life and future of our country, whatever the result.
The Secretariat of UniCost in Milan – Unit for the Constitution – is organising, in collaboration with CEST, an afternoon of debate to explore the various contrasting positions with a rigorous approach.
Massimiliano Malvicini, doctoral student in Constitutional Law at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa and member of CEST, will participate as a discussant.
In partnership with UniCost – Unità per la Costituzione
He teaches Constitutional Law at the University of Milan and is a barrister in Milan. Among other things, he deals with judicial questions tied to disability and inclusive law. Together with Marilisa D’amico and Stefania Leone he published Come cambia la costituzione? Guida alla lettura della riforma costituzionale (Giappichelli, 2016).
He was Professor of Constitutional Law at the Sapienza University of Rome, a member of parliament and often minister (in the governments Prodi I, D’Alema II and Amato II). In his political activity, he deals particularly with constitutional reforms and public administration. He has written on federalism, the European Constitution, and the public sector. He is president of the ASTRID Foundation.
He is Emeritus President of the Constitutional Court and Emeritus Professor of Penal Law at the LUISS (Rome), where he taught until his election as a Constitutional Judge (in 2000). He was Minister for Justice in the first Prodi government.
Formerly Full Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Turin, he currently teaches at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan. He is the author of contributions on 20th century judicial thinking that have become classics, and more recently, of numerous public statements on the themes of democracy, secularism, and the Constitution. Among others are: “Contro l’etica della verità” (Laterza, 2008), “Interno alla legge” (Einaudi, 2009), “Loro diranno, noi diciamo. Vademecum sulle riforme istituzionali” (Laterza, 2016).
