Abstract

Le innovazioni legislative tra 2004 e 2007 hanno mutato la relazione tra l'Agenzia del territorio e le imprese che utilizzano e elaborano le informazioni immobiliari per fornire servizi informativi a banche e assicurazioni. I provvedimenti erano ispirati a estendere le attività dell'Agenzia, ma l'analisi del problema e del contenzioso che ne è seguito mostra come il confine tra la fornitura del servizio con criteri moderni e l'abuso di posizione dominante sia sottile. Questo confine è stato probabilmente valicato in almeno alcuni casi, tanto che alcune corti hanno invocato la disapplicazione delle norme nazionali da parte dell'Agenzia. Queste vicende hanno avuto un impatto negativo sul settore privato, e soprattutto sulle imprese più piccole, che forniscono servizi di minore contenuto e qualità. Per altro, una evoluzione delle attività dell'Agenzia pare fisiologica, così che una difesa degli attuali confini pubblico/privato non sembra sostenibile. È anche possibile che questo costringa il settore privato a una pesante ristrutturazione, ma, per favorire questo processo, occorre un approccio ispirato ad una gradualità maggiore di quanto i provvedimenti legislativi richiedevano.
