The Making of the Italian Constitution and Agricultural Policies of the 50’s and 60’s
AbstractThe economic and social problems of the rural areas had considerable impact on the making of the 1948 Constitution and subsequent legislation. The paper reviews the important supporting role of the Economic Commission highlighting two outstanding features of the Republican Constitution: (i) the power of the law to ensure that private and public economic activities be consistent with the pursuit of social ends; (ii) the explicit reference to size limits and other obligations for private landed property. Finally, it describes the scope and degree of success of the agricultural policies approved after the Constitution enactment.
