Study Day on the Institutional Reforms

In Turin, a day to analyse the evolution of the forms of government and the parliamentary system

Cavallerizza Reale, Aula Magna| Via Verdi 9, Torino


To explore the historical, political and juridical problems that have characterised and continue to charaterise our form of government. This is the aim of the Study Day on the institutional reforms promoted by CEST and realised through sponsorship by the Italian Constitutionalist Association and the Department of Jurisprudence of the University of Turin, scheduled for Friday 17 November from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm at the Cavallerizza Reale (Aula Magna) of the University of Turin.

This will be an opportunity for direct exploration, both by scholars and citizens, to discuss and analyse the themes of constitutional significance that have characterised the political/institutional system of our country during the last thirty years: from the evolution of our form of government to attempt at reforming the bicameral system and electoral legislation, including the profound transformation that is affecting our forms of political representation.

To discuss the evolution of our form of government, in at 10:30 am, there will be: Mario Dogliani, University of Turin, Gianfranco Pasquino, University of Bologna & John Hopkins University SAIS, Giovanni Tarli Barbieri, University of Florence, Sergio Foà, University of Turin; in the early afternoon, at 3:00 pm, the focus will shift to potentiality and the limits of the Italian parliamentary system with  Luca Verzichelli, University of Siena, Nicola Lupo and Andrea Manzella, both teachers at the “Guido Carli” LUISS in Rome, and Massimo Cavino, University of East Piedmont. Matteo Monti and Massimiliano Malvicini, doctoral students at the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna in Pisa and members of CEST, will participate in the two sessions as discussants.

At 6:00 pm, the Study Day will conclude with a round table involving Beniamino Caravita di Toritto, Professor of Institutions of Public Law at the Sapienza University in Rome, Ugo De Siervo, Emeritus President of the Constitutional Court, Anna Finocchiaro, Minister for Parliamentary Relations, and Andrea Mazziotti di Celso, President of the Commission for Constitutional Affairs of the Chamber of Deputies.
