CONSUMER PROTECTION AND NEW CONTRACT LAW IN THE EUROPEAN UNION AND IN ITALY

Abstract

This paper deals with the recent normative modifications introduced in the European Union by the Directive 2011/83/EU (aimed to realize a full harmonization of member states’ rules in some aspects of consumer and contractual law), and consequently in Italy, through the Legislative Decree No. 21/2014 (which transposed the supranational source). As it is known, the principal legal instruments used in the last years by the EU to protect the weak parties are the ‘information duties’ and the ‘right of withdrawal’. The new rules try to strengthen them, but the implementation of the European Directive in Italy gives rise to many arguable points and perplexities.
