La sussidiarietà orizzontale nella giurisprudenza
Il valore aggiunto. Come la sussidiarietà può salvare l’Italia (2010)
  • Fabio Giglioni

The essay analyses the case law referring to the Italian Constitutional principle of horizontal subsidiarity. After an initial consideration on how courts can apply the principle, the article, reflecting findings of constitutional, administrative and civil courts, branches in five ways: a) relationship between public authority and citizens; b) relationship between the principle of horizontal subsidiarity and the other Constitutional and administrative principles; c) connections with the capacity of citizens and association to bring public authority before the court; d) impacts on the economic relations; e) relapses into the organisation of public authority. The essay ends underlining swingings of judicial interpretation of the principle, which hinder to draw an unambiguous meaning.
