The Italian Legal System: An Introduction, Second Edition Hardcover – October 21, 2015











For fifty years, the first edition of The Italian Legal System has been the gold standard among English-language works on the Italian legal system. The book’s original authors, Mauro Cappelletti, John Henry Merryman, and Joseph M. Perillo, provided not only an overview of Italian law, but a definition of the field, together with an important contribution to the general literature on comparative law. The book explains the unique “Italian style” in doctrine, law, and interpretation and includes an extremely well-written introduction to Italian legal history, government, the legal profession, and civil procedure and evidence.

In this fully-updated and revised second edition, authors Michael A. Livingston, Pier Giuseppe Monateri, and Francesco Parisi describe the substantial changes in Italian law and society in the intervening five decades—including the creation and impact of the European Union, as well as important advances in comparative law methodology. The second edition poses timely, relevant questions of whether and to what extent the unique Italian style of law has survived the pressures of European unification, American influence, and the globalization of law and society in the intervening period. The Italian Legal System, Second Edition is an important and stimulating resource for those with specific interest in Italy and those with a more general interest in comparative law and the globalization process.

Fressoia on Aesthetics and Legal Interpretation in Monateri’s Thought

“All’interno della compagine italiana, il pensiero di Pier Giuseppe Monateri si contraddistingue per l’originalità delle intuizioni, che fondono la competenza del comparatista con le problematiche più strettamente proprie della filosofia e, in particolare, quelle connesse al complesso rapporto tra diritto e linguaggio. Con questo articolo si propone una sintesi dei concetti chiave del pensiero dell’autore, facendo soprattutto riferimento ai due recenti libri Geopolitica del diritto. Genesi, governo e dissoluzione dei corpi politici I confini della legge, Sovranitˆ e governo del mondo …”

Monateri on Political Sublime and the Exotic Birth of European Sovereignty.

Political Sublime. 

Heterodoxy and Jurisdiction at the Origin of Modernity





The aim of this paper, held at the meeting of the Harvard International Group for Law and Politics (IGLP), is to show the demonological origin of modernity, which entails a “sublime” aspect of the political exceeding the words by which we try to capture its nature.
My paper proceeds using the lexicon of the Italian Theory (Agamben and Esposito) to analyse the parallel between King James I and Jean Bodin. Both authors developed the modern conceptions of political sovereignty and both were engaged in witch-trials, writing extensive treatises on the matter. This parallel locates the question of heterodoxy/orthodoxy in the very threshold of modernity.
My tentative conclusion is the possibility of a link between the politicization of the magic world and the genealogy of modernity, reversing, in a way, the standard approach of political theology in favour of a demonological archeology of modern European concepts of law and politics.
