Example text

The constitutional role thus entrusted to the Court has indirectly contributed to raising the rank and importance of the Regions in the political and constitutional life of the country. When Parliament or a regional Assembly enact legislation which is considered by the Court to exceed the powers defined by the text of the Constitution, the Act itself is struck off the book by the Court’s decision. In fact, the declaration of unconstitutionality is often indicated in Italian doctrine as a true exercise of legislative power, in a negative sense, pertaining to the Court.

The atmosphere, as already mentioned, has changed considerably; in present times the wind may be said to be blowing adequately in favour of the Regions, but so far the Court still stands as a rather formidable vigilant sentinel of national unity. Naturally, the major safeguard of national unity lies in the way spending powers are allocated. It is well known how the power of the purse has been permanently in the forefront in the United Kingdom ever since discussion started on the subject of devolution.

Furthermore, we should ask ourselves what are the essential points to be considered in order to establish: (1) whether a country is well run and conforms to the ideal model of a ‘good’ Western democracy; and (2) whether some of the solutions adopted in a given type of government (or administration) may be at all exportable. I will only try, more modestly, to underline a few aspects that appear to me of particular interest in the present stage of Italian constitutional development and certainly I will not comment on the negative sides of Italian regionalism.
