The Italian State as Majority Shareholder

D.r. Francesco Cuccu, Università degli Studi de Sassari, Giurisprudenza, Italy

This event is open for everyone, including students.

State-owned companies pervaded Italian capitalism since last century first decades.

In spite of regulation instructing Public Authorities to liquidate or sell their stakes, the number of State-owned companies is always increasing.

Along with the increase in the number  of State-owned companies there has also been, especially in the last decade, a significant  proliferation of related rules and regulations, including wholly-owned State enterprises. This phenomenon has produced a very complex legal framework, which  makes it very difficult to determine the nature of the company, and, as a result, its legal regime. A problem especially perceived for the dynamic phenomenon of the in house providing companies, as proved by some recent sentences delivered by Italian Supreme Court.
