RULE OF LAW AND PANDEMIC. THE ITALIAN STRATEGY FOR MANAGING COVID-19 EPIDEMIOLOGICAL EMERGENCY

Viviana Di Capua

Abstract


The contribution examines the most significant stages of the Italian strategy for managing the Covid-19 epidemiological emergency, through the analysis of the main legislative and administrative acts issued by the Government and by Regional and Local Authorities to face the crisis. The analysis aims to demonstrate that the powers of the competent Authorities have not been exercised in compliance with the principle of loyal collaboration, which inspires the relations between center and periphery. On a practical level, the ordinances issued by the Regional and Local Authorities have imposed more restrictive mitigation measures in their respective territories, overlapping the provisions of the Central Government and compromising the unitary strategy for managing the crisis.
