Contratti del minore e responsabilità per i danni prodotti alla controparte

Di Francesco Rossi -
With regard to the patrimonial acts of the minor, the attention of the doctrine is mainly directed to establish whether – and, if so, when –– the contracts, that he concludes in everyday life, may be considered valid. Little attention has been paid to the specific profile of liability for damages caused to the party who is capable of acting, when, in the formation of the contract, the minor’s age has been concealed or denied. The essay examines precisely whether, in cases of annulment of the contract concluded by the minor or of damage caused to the other party by the uselessness of the negotiations undertaken in the light of the minor’s incapacity to act, there are means of protecting the capable party.
