Diritto successorio e procreazione assistita

Marco Rizzuti


Biotechnologies have reshaped Family Law and now they are consequently challenging traditional Inheritance Law principles. The paper analyses the legal as-pects of Posthumous Embryo Transfer, recently authorized by Italian judges, and of Post-Mortem Fertilisation, still prohibited in the most part of Europe, because of its contrast with Public Policy, but allowed in other Western Countries. It also raises the question of the new role of Private Wills in this particular context.
