Ci può essere dialogo tra le Corti senza leale cooperazione tra i legislatori? Dal caso Taricco bis al sindacato di costituzionalità “in supplenza” sulla legge penale
Is it possible a dialogue among Courts without a fair cooperation among legislators? From the Taricco bis case to a “substitutive” constitutional adjudication on criminal law
Abstract: The article analyzes the Taricco bis case, discussing the short term results of this decision in theperspective of a broader fair cooperation among Courts and an effective European integration. The dialogue among the European Court of Justice and the Italian Constitutional Court is described focusing on the different patterns used to partially achieve the same goal (to avoid disapplication without a denial of the infringement of EU law). Looking to the possible future developments of cases like Taricco, the second part of the article is dedicated to an overview on the spaces for a constitutional adjudication on criminal law, to verify pros and cons of a possible direct and detrimental intervention of the Constitutional Court on the criminal statute of limitations, to comply with the EU duties of criminal protection in the hypothesis of an omission of the Parliament to legislate.
Keywords: Controlimiti; Non-retroactivity and precision in criminal law; Constitutional adjudication and the dialogue among Courts.
