Course Description

L’Italia, insieme alla Germania, è spesso stata definita come una “nazione in ritardo”. Tuttavia, a differenza del caso tedesco, l’unificazione italiana si realizza anche tramite un rapido processo di accentramento istituzionale. Il corso intende mostrare il contributo offerto dai giuristi nel processo di unificazione nazionale italiano, in particolare nel XIX secolo.


Il materiale didattico sarà fornito durante il corso. Utile è la lettura di P. Grossi, Il diritto nella storia dell'Italia unita, Editoriale Scientifica 2012 e del capitolo Revolution und Risorgimento in C. Dipper, Ferne Nachbarn. Vergleichende Studien zu Deutschland und Italien in der Moderne, Böhlau Verlag, Köln Weimar Wien, 2018.
