Under Italian law, the (only) court competent to solve constitutional questions – the Constitutional Court – is often required to verify the constitutionality of tort law rules. Focusing on the Constitutional Court’s pronouncements about the notion of fault in tort liability, the paper aims to investigate how the Court performs its role in a field where judicial review is seldom aimed to the scant legislative tort law rules, and most of the times targets the way in which ordinary courts, including the Court of Cassation (i.e. the Supreme Court in civil matters), apply tort law rules, and set the fault standard(s).
