How is it possible to read the 30s in the juridical politics of Fascism?

How did jurists contribute to this phase of Italian history?

The reflections inside the book La costruzione della ‘legalità’ fascista negli anni Trenta (The construction of fascist ‘legality’ during the 30s) give us the idea that Italy became “some sort of open construction site to model institutions, law, and lifestyles of a massive industrial society according to the “Mussolinian political vision”.

The phenomenon involved all law fields and turned into a gigantic process of “juridification” of the regime politics, where jurists, trying not to be the center, contributed in different ways, to model the new Fascist Legality. Historians of different subjects will discuss the topic: Massimo Brutti, Guido Melis, Albertina Vittoria. The moderator will be Giulio Vigevani. The book editors will be present too.
