Chapter Summary

This chapter illustrates the peculiar institutions and procedures in the relations with the central state, which have to guarantee both, autonomy, by means of their adaptation to the specific situation for the sake of respecting diversity, as well as the compatibility of the special legal system in South Tyrol with the legal system of Italy (i.e., the integrative function). The relations between South Tyrol and the centre, however, are far from being static: the progressive and dynamic evolution of the Italian regional system often required innovative solutions, different from those applied to the other regions. The illustration of the relations between the Italian state and the South Tyrolean autonomy is characterized by their dynamics and changes. Continuous adaptation is the challenge for the integration of the autonomous entity into the wider frame of the state system?integration without risking the loss of (essential elements of ) the special nature.

Keywords: central state; Italian regional system; legal system; South Tyrolean autonomy
