Course description

The course aims to offer students the basic knowledge and logical-analytical tools necessary to undertake the study of the third sector. The starting point is the analysis of the organizations governed by Book I of the c.c. which are opposed to those for profit regulated in Book V. We then proceed to address the period of special legislation, started in the 90s, with which specific figures of non-profit organizations were introduced. On the one hand, this has enriched the view of legal persons, on the other, it has created a framework without general principles. With the delegated law n. 106 of 2016 the legislator has instructed the Government to implement the reform of the sector, also according to the role it is assigned to play in the implementation of the constitutional principle of horizontal subsidiarity. The reform has culminated with the issuing of the Third Sector Code which took place with Legislative Decree no. 117/2017.
