I quindici anni della legge 40: nemesi e questioni aperte nella disciplina della fecondazione assistita

Di Federico Azzarri -
The present article tackles the issue of medically assisted reproduction in the Italian legal system. In little more than a decade, the most important aspects of the statute no. 40/2004 have been deeply changed by several judgments of the Italian Constitutional Court. Nevertheless, some crucial questions are still open and worth further discussion. Thus, this paper addresses the following points: the treatment of the supernumerary embryos; the subjective requirements to have access to the heterologous insemination; the donation of gametes; the right of the donor-conceived people to have information about the donor and their origins.
