Part of the Ius Comparatum - Global Studies in Comparative Law book series (GSCL, volume 26)


This Report was prepared with regard to cross-border cases where foreign law is determined as the applicable law by the Italian PIL statute. Attention is given not only to the Italian PIL Statute of 1995, but also to the former Italian PIL system, with a focus on its Italian literature and application in case law. In particular, the Report analyses a landmark judgment of the Supreme Court, of May 26, 2014, which highlights the binding force of the Italian PIL rules and which has wide implications on the state of art of pleading and proofing of foreign laws in Italy.
