Textbook of Administrative Law

Compared to similar manuals, the text stands out for some innovative classifications and partitions of the subject, developed by the author for a better and more immediate understanding of the discipline. In this sense, some of the categories of the past deserved to be reviewed and modernized in consideration of the unstoppable development that administrative law has known in recent decades and continues to know: just think of the recent code of public contracts (Legislative Decree no. 50/2016) and the reforms that have affected administrative transparency, civic access and the administrative procedure (legislative decree number 33/2013 as well as law no. 124/2015 and related implementing decrees).
