Encyclopedic knowledge and paths of administrative functions. About a volume of Enciclopedia del diritto

By Maria Rosaria Ferrarese

The purpose of the article is to examine a volume of Enciclopedia del diritto, published by Giuffrè, about Administrative Functions and edited by Bernardo Giorgio Mattarella and Margherita Ramajoli. It is possible to refer to four main trajectories that some entries in the encyclopedic collection help to suggest. These can be collected into the following categories: forking paths; real transfigurations; return trips; diasporic tendencies. All these trajectories seem to demonstrate that we are in a time of strong changes and even notable restlessness for administrative law, and not only.
