Abstract

There was a time in history when Italian and English tort’s structure had lots in common. Nowadays, instead, it’s not like that anymore, in particular if the plaintiff claims a non-pecuniary damage. Also, in this case negligence is based just on the breach of duty of care, whereas the Italian Corte di Cassazione has clarified that a violation of a constitutional human right is demanded to the application of the art. 2059 c.c. When to come into consideration, however, is the protection of health, the practical results tend to coincide to the point of bringing out a convergence on the need for an objective approach towards this right. In the perspective of European harmonization, the A. focuses his attention on how this concurrence has been possible and which stumbling blocks torts law had to overcome in both countries.
