Course Description

Il corso è rivolto allo studio di una disciplina particolare del libro quarto delle obbligazioni, contenuta nel titolo IX “dei fatti illeciti”. In concreto, con questo ciclo di lezioni si intende approfondire i profili critici della responsabilità aquiliana, non prima di averne individuato gli elementi essenziali e i punti differenziali con quella contrattuale.

L’approccio metodologico prescelto si concentrerà in gran parte sull’analisi – e sul successivo dibattito che ne seguirà in classe – della giurisprudenza interna di legittimità.


Durante le lezioni il docente fornirà materiale aggiuntivo necessario a integrare gli appunti e il manuale.

Il manuale consigliato è:

- G. Visintini, Cos’è la responsabilità civile. Fondamenti della disciplina dei fatti illeciti e dell’inadempimento contrattuale, Napoli, ESI, ult. ed. (2019), relativamente alle seguenti pagine: 11-22 (introduzione); 45-78 (cap. I); 109-156 (cap. III); 195-203 (cap. V); 219-261 (cap. VII); 267-297 (cap. X).
