Il patto di famiglia a dieci anni dall’entrata in vigore

Di Maria Virginia Maccari -

After ten years from the entry into force of law 55/2006 (entitled “Amendments to the Civil Code dealing with ‘Patto di Famiglia’”), the paper analyses the use of the legal institute of “patto di famiglia”. Many interpretative problems arise from the unclear phrasing of the new regulation and other new questions are posed by subsequent legislation.

Until today, none of the legislative attempts made to amend the Italian “patto di famiglia” has completed its parliamentary procedures, and practices had to make up for this deficiency, by adapting the institute to the needs arising in practice.
