Protección penal de la vida y autodeterminación terapéutica: cuatro cuestiones a propósito de la Ordinanza 207/2018 de la Corte Costituzionale italiana

Andrea Perin

Text of the commentary exposed at the conference of professor Francesco Viganò, judge at the Constitutional Court, on “The Italian Criminal Law in the light of the Constitution and the Human Rights in the 21st century: five relevant judgments of the Italian Constitutional Court in the biennium 2018-2019”, given on 5 July 2019, in Santiago de Chile (Universidad Diego Portales), within the framework of the II Italo-Chilean Seminar on Criminal Justice. The discussant raises four main issues about the Order n. 207/2018 of the Italian Constitutional Court concerning the crime of assisted suicide: (1) Does the Court argue the unconstitutionality of the 219/2017 Act? (2) Does the Court overcome, although under certain conditions, the distinction between the withdrawal of consent to medical treatment and assisted suicide or euthanasia? (3) Would the regulation of assisted suicide admit a right to conscientious objection? (4) Which is the functional limit, in this context, of the principle of equality and reasonableness?

Such a focus is based on excerpts from the renowned monographs “Inganno ed Errore” (1955) by Cesare Pedrazzi and “Il reato come azione” (1971) by Giorgio Marinucci

Idiosincrasia y dogmática penal italiana De paso, sobre si acaso Franco Bricola fue un revolucionario o un reformador. (un ejercicio poco “científico”, ma con grande affetto)

Fernando Londoño Martinez

Taking the cue from an intervention at professor Gabriele Fornasari’s seminar in Valparaíso on 20 November 2018, on the Evolution of Italian criminal law doctrine in the XX century, the author offers an overview of the main features of the Italian criminal law doctrine, establishing a relationship with certain idiosyncratic values. In the second part, the author addresses a query raised by one of the seminar attendees, trying to answer to the question whether Franco Bricola was a revolutionary or a reformer. The answer implies a reference to a forthcoming piece
