Si tratta della relazione svolta al Convegno “I cardini della modernità penale dai codici Rocco alle stagioni dell’Italia repubblicana”, Roma 11 e 12 novembre 2022.
Necessarily and purely jurisprudence-based criminal law
The paper analyses the historical evolution of criminal law in civil law countries: from the penal code to the affirmation of the law created by the judge.
The Author focuses on the crisis of written law and today’s tendency of the Courts to free law. The study gives a critical analysis of this approach. The interpretation of the law should not be an open, but rather a text-driven activity.
