  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: President of the Republic, doctrine of the pouvoir neutre, function of constitutional control.

The essay is aimed at showing the real effects generated by the doctrine which assigns a function of constitutional control to the Italian President of the Republic. In particular, the definition of the President as a constitutional guarantor has increased his political powers and has given the presidency a central role in the constitutional process through which national policies are elaborated. Furthermore, the essay examines the doctrine that defines the Italian President as a pouvoir neutre, as elaborated by the Constitutional Court in the sentence n. 1/2013, and criticizes the interpretive theory supporting it.
