Keywords: Regions, loyal cooperation, distribution of powers, institutional conflicts, centralization

During its constitutional history, the Italian regional system has gone through different phases, shaped either by a strong state centralism or by the idea of allowing the Regions to exercise a sort of veto power in several important fields.

The difficulty of creating a balanced regional system also concerns the special regions, whose future seems uncertain.
