The study of matter presupposes the knowledge of constitutional law and fundamental notions of administrative law.
The course aims to provide students with a thorough knowledge of the legal framework, organization and mode of operation of the regional Italian system. In particular the subject of teaching are the relationships between regional authorities and the State, local governments, the European Union and international organisations.
The course will also promote and develop, the student, the ability to use the correct legal terminology-exhibition and argumentative skills and the capacity for critical evaluation of the logical-systematic legislative and liaison between the different themes and topics analyzed.
The constitutional position of the Regions, their internal discipline and the system of relations with the state, local authorities and the European Union will be illustrated and examined. For a better understanding of the subject, the historical evolution of the regional order in Italy will be traced back to its late establishment and analyzing the successive reforms that led to the current organizational and functional structure, defined in its essential aspects by Constitutional revision laws nn. 1 of 1999, 2 of 2001 and 3 of 2001 and its ordinary implementing laws. The legislative and administrative powers of regional authorities, matters of constitutional order, the current division of competences between the state and the region, and the hermeneutic criteria adopted by the Consulta to resolve these issues of constitutional relevance will be discussed in detail
