The On-Going Process of Institutional Reform in Italy
The Harvard Club of Italy, along with the Center for American Studies, is going to host a major event on the on-going process of Institutional Reforms in Italy.
This is a key and pivotal topic now in Italy, few days after the Parliament passed a bill that will completely redesign the structure of Italian institutions. It is indeed a unique occasion, to hear a high-profile discussion from so many outstanding personalities, all together at once. And timing was never more appropriate to feed public debate.
After a welcome greeting by Gianni De Gennaro, President of Finmeccanica and the Center of American Studies, the Conference will be introduced by Giuliano Amato, former Prime Minister of the Republic of Italy, now serving as Judge at the Constitutional Court. The Minister for Constitutional Reforms, Maria Elena Boschi, will be then delivering the key-note speech, describing the new model.
Prominent jurists, judges and lawmakers will later discuss main features of most recent reforms, highlighting possible advantages and risks, and go through draft or prospective next ones. In particular, will contribute to the discussion bipartisan personalities such as prof. Sabino Cassese, judge emeritus at the Constitutional Court, prof. Antonio Catricalà, past president of the Anti-Trust Authority, and prof. Eugenio Gaudio, serving Provost of University of Rome "la Sapienza".
The event will be moderated by Dino Sorgonà, former head of the Political and Economic Press Room at RAI.
