The article critically reviews Riccardo Guastini's theory of legal interpretation, as it is now exposed in the recent book Interpretare e argomentare. While broadly sympathetic with Guastini's jurisprudential project, the author tries to highlight some weaknesses in his conceptual framework - namely, regarding the distinction between "scientific" and "decisional" interpretation, the distinction between interpretation properly understood and creation of new law, and the concept of interpretive creativity.
