Supranational Trends of Civil and Commercial Law: Towards a Reunification of Private law? – Florence


First Colloquium of the Osservatorio del Diritto Civile e Commerciale

testatanuovaaThe ambition of the colloquium is to bring together some prominent figures in the fields of European private law as well as younger researchers, who may share the interest in a genuine and open-minded discussion on some of the most challenging topics of common interest to private and commercial law academics. The idea is, inter alia, to foster future research connections among scholars from different countries and with different viewpoints. The emphasis of the colloquium is on the need to re-examine and reassess the borders of private law, with a focus on the the traditional distinction between civil law stricto sensu and commercial law., which the 1942 Italian codice civile was first to abandon (book V of the code encompasses company law, labour law and parts of what we call today competition law).
