The Influence of the Italian Civil Law in Latin-America


Created as a celebration of the 80th anniversary of the Italian Civil Code, the current volume presents a theoretical model for a dialogue between Italy and Latin America. With a view to emphasising the specificity of the contexts where the Italian code initially impacted, even where it did not remain a leading cultural presence, the volume also highlights particular aspect of different legal cultures in Latin America. The book focuses on the civil legal culture that each country has developed over the decades, while underlining individual characteristics, thus providing a sense of autonomy and independence instead of any residual idea of 'cultural imperialism', even indirectly.
