The job analyzes in a critical prospective the remission of tax liability, with a particular
attention to the serious problems of constitutionality that it gives. Until to the 1971 all the
remissions emanated regarded only the sanctions. It was from the Tax System Reform of 1971 that
the remission regarded the taxes for the generality of the contributors, like transitory regimen in
order to pass from a system to an other. And this justification has been adduced improperly also
for the last ones remissions. This institute has a political and economic genesis, as said the
jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court that always has saved it: the remission of tax liability
is preordered to acquire to the State more income and to avoid actions. The Auctor hopes a new
jurisprudence of the Court in order to specify the constitutional limits of the remission, that is a
defect of the democracy.

What are the underlying risks involved in extending the rigidly standardized structure of
the normative process to the case of euthanasia? What might the consequences be if terminal
situations were subjected to bureaucratic management and collective administration? How
may such procedures be reconciled with the Art. 5 of the Civil Code, by which all decisions affecting ones own body are to be considered null if they aim to the permanent undermining physical well being? Is the "living will'' the only instrument that can guarantee the actual respect of
the last wishes expressed by an individual in full possession of his/her faculties? These and other
issues have been opened to debate during a convention organised by Bruno Montanari at the
Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano. Numerous eminent legal experts, juridical philosophers, anthropologists and researchers in bioethics took part in the discussion, to which we
would like to contribute by offering some additional thoughts.
