Giurisprudenza costituzionale represents one of the most important reference points in matter of Italian Constitutional doctrine. Established in the same year the Constitutional Court became operative, this review's role immediately became one of "doctrinal references" for the Supreme Body of Constitutional Justice. For this reason, the Review has always aroused the interest not only of public law scholars, but also of experts, such as judges and lawyers who have to tackle daily problems to constitutional justice. The review describes all Constitutional Court decisions, furnished with exhaustive bibliography and case law, as well as, in some of the most controversial cases, with the text of summonses of judgements. Moreover, the most important decisions are specifically annotated by experts in this field. In addition, the Review publishes articles on case law, debates dealing with constitutional subjects ( among others the debate on President Cossiga's message on institutional reforms, the one on so-called "Mancuso affair", concerning single no-confidence motion), decisions issued by "common" judges having constitutional significance, documents and chronicles regarding constitutionally controversial events ( amongst the most recent, special attention must be given to documents regarding the "Gulf crisis" and relevant parliamentary debate; and to State Council's opinions with regard to regulations concerning execution of Law No. 241, 1990 and "Pay TV", etc.). In the latter years, reviewing of foreign case law has almost doubled. In fact, review of the judiciary activity in various constitutional Courts have been published periodically, as well as contributions from foreign experts who comment topics of great interest, basic rights in Canada, France and Germany, the "positive actions" in the United States, etc.). Indexes are compiled with the utmost care, by author and by subject, furnished with indications regarding provisions of the Law.
