Testamenti simultanei e patto successorio istitutivo tra coniugi: riflessioni critiche su una recente pronuncia della Suprema Corte di Cassazione

Di Filippo Rizzi -
The Supreme Court annuls two simultaneous wills drawn up by two spouses, identifying within two simultaneous wills presumptive elements suitable to integrate the existence of an agreement as to succession (i.e. “patto successorio istitutivo”). With this contribution, the Author intends to underline the critical aspects of this ruling, isolating the main legal issues addressed by the Supreme Court, with the hope of a future adherence to a more prudent doctrine, which tends to preserve and safeguard the will of the testators.
