The following study aims to review the monograph by Maria Barela Il potere apparente. Uno
studio sulle associazioni non riconosciute (Milano, 2019). The work analyzes the role and powers
of people who act for and on behalf of an association with no legal personality, and it also
focuses on examining what happens when he who is acting in its interest is a subject who
presents himself as its representative without being invested with such power (the so-called
falsus procurator). This paper highlights the merits of the work, especially the need for legal
certainty and the authority of the written law that the author Maria Barela sets at the basis
of her interesting study.
