Public Organization and the Scope of Local Government in Benvenuti’s View of Administrative Law

By Fulvio Cortese

The article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of Benvenuti’s scholarship, focusing on the central role of the organizational perspective and on the theoretical background of regional and local government design. In particular, the author aims to demonstrate that the organizational aspect is crucial in Benvenuti’s view of administrative law, due to its connections with the identity of any legal order. On this basis, Benvenuti was able to build a complex «republican» conception of Italian administrative law.
