Per non morire di inerzia: piste di riflessione per una legge italiana su alcuni aspetti del fine vita

Chiara Tamburini


Taking as a starting point the current state of the Italian legislation and the latest capital judgement of the Constitutional Court in the area of the end of life, the article explores ‒ from a de iure condendo perspective ‒ several aspects of the laws and the reality of the health system and of the political culture of Belgium, a country that has highly developed care, services and rights in this area.
