ROTTAMA ITALIA - PERCHÉ IL DECRETO SBLOCCA-ITALIA È UNA MINACCIA PER LA DEMOCRAZIA E PER IL NOSTRO FUTURO

Paper/Screen convergence, 2014

The so-called Unlock-Italy decree, considered anti-constitutional by jurists such as Ferdinando Imposimato, Paolo Maddalena, Giovanni Losavio, became law in Italy on 11 November 2014, following an ambiguous bi-partisan vote.

This free ebook – available in pdf, epub, and mobi-Kindle formats – features a critical analysis of a law that is expected to burden Italian politics, economy, and environment starting in 2015.
