Sorte dell’autonomia nei processi di trasformazione politica e al cospetto della pandemia
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The essay examines the relations between the transformations of the party system and the events of territorial autonomy, on the basis of a perspective of analysis that regards political parties and territorial autonomies as the two engines of the democratization of the legal system set up by the Italian constituent assembly. In the recent experience, this approach reveals the close relationship between the following two phenomena: on the side of autonomies, the redefinition of their form of government in the direction of a monocratic concentration of power, initially enacted at the municipal level and later extended at the regional level too; on the side of the party system, the progressive generalization of the personal party and its increasingly strong inspiration to a populist mentality, which find a favourable ground in the hyper-presidentialist institution that is typical of the regional context. These factors prevent territorial autonomies from becoming an instrument of democratization of the legal system and overcome the North-South cleavage. The result is a profound deviation from the constitutional framework, a deviation that reveals itself through the Covid-19 pandemic, which highlights the difficulties in dialogue between the State and the Regions and the worsening of the pre-existing territorial gaps.
