Abstract

In 2019, the Italian Constitutional Court (hereafter ICC) ruled in continuity with its most recent case law and strengthened its institutional role by coordinating its powers and competences both with other constitutional actors and with supranational institutions. The first dimension of this “institutional relationality” took center stage in 2019: the ICC engaged the legislator in an intense “dialogue” by using the full spectrum of its decisional powers. Some quintessential examples will be illustrated below (Section II). However, the Court remained firm in the exercise of its most traditional role of safeguarding fundamental rights, particularly those of the weakest part of the population (as illustrated in some of the cases reported below in Section III)
