SPADOLINI CHAIR

A Visiting Chair in memory of the late Italian Senator Spadolini, pictured right, was established at the Institute of Global Law to assist in the teaching of Italian law. It is financed by a number of Italian foundations and banks, including the Spadolini Foundation in Florence, the Banca d’Italia, the Compania di San Paolo and others. The Institute and, indeed, the whole Faculty of Laws express their deep appreciation to Professor Margiotta Broglio and Professor Avv. Cesare Mirabelli, Emeritus President of the Italian Constitutional Court, for their indefatigable efforts to create this valuable link between the two countries.

So far the following eminent Italian jurists have held the Chair:

Professor Cesare Mirabelli, Former President to the Italian Constitutional Court
Professor Dr Guido Alpa of the University of Rome
Professor Maurizio Lupoi of the University of Genoa
Professor Giovanna Visentini, formerly Dean of the Law Faculty of the University of Genoa

The next visitor will be Professor Mauro Bussani of the University of Trieste. More elections are expected to be made from the academic years 2003 and 2004.
