The author outlines the limits to the right of criticism defined through case law. A particular attention is devoted to the balancing of right of criticism and duty of confidentiality and to the role of the right of criticism on the prevention of corruption. Then, he analyses the new legislation on whistle-blowers. The objective of the paper is that of re-thinking, on the basis of the whistle-blowers legislation, the boundaries of the right to criticism so as to make them more respondent to the values of the Italian Constitution.
