By Valerio Bontempi, Giorgio Mocavini, Elisabetta Tatì

The article describes the Government’s regulatory activity in the period 2020-2021. This period was characterized by measures to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. As a consequence, first of all, the health measures adopted during the emergency and concerning both the obligations of physical distancing and the containment of the epidemic are taken into consideration, as well as the provisions relating to vaccinations and the so called ‘green pass’. Subsequently, the main regulations adopted to support the economy and the entrepreneurial system are taken into account, distinguishing between financial aids, aimed at reducing the negative impact of the pandemic on companies and workers, and other economic recovery measures, also adopted in the context of the Next Generation EU and of the national recovery and resilience plan. Finally, it is necessary to analyze the regulatory and administrative simplification measures, introduced to promote economic recovery, making the public administration more efficient and facilitating the implementation of the projects included in the national recovery and resilience plan.
