The essay expresses the starting point of a study aiming to deepen the role of the principle of laity in the Italian administrative law. In spite of a general appreciation of this principle in the Italian constitutional system, almost never it is used to resolve disputes included in the administrative law, except for the educational field. However, the principle of impartiality, that is ratified in the art. 97 of the Italian constitution, contains meanings likely to the principle of laity; particularly, the contribution emphasizes three possible meanings: impartiality like neutrality of public authority; impartiality like neutralization of partiality of public authority; impartiality like fairness of public autority. Each of them is strongly connected with the principle of laity. The essay underlines, however, the weak respect of this principle on the side of the organization of administration.
