Testamento della persona «vulnerabile», principio di conservazione e ragionevolezza

Di Salvatore Patti -

The essay moves from some considerations made by Pietro Rescigno in the book “Interpretazione del testamento” (Interpretation of the will) and highlights their usefulness in order to overcome the case-law that deems the very old and senile, and thus vulnerable, testator’s “deception” necessary in order to nullify the handwritten will. The principle of preservation of the document, in fact, does not have to lead to consider a will, that does not represent the effective intention of the de cuius, who suffered the undue influence, to be valid.
