Legal Implications of the Cardiovascular Evaluation of Athletes

  • M. Di Luca


In 1950 a special health protection law was introduced into the Italian legal System. According to this law professional and amateur athletes, who are regularly paid or practise sporting activities generally regarded as severe and dangerous, are obliged to undergo medical eligibility checks as a necessary qualification to practise sports. This law is the result of the application of art. 32 of the Constitutional Law of the Italian Republic approved in 1948.
