The aim of this article is to investigate the origins of the concept of worthiness of private law elaborated by Emilio Betti that was inserted in the Italian Civil code of 1942, in the light of the legal and cultural circumstances that developed between the end of the XIXth and the beginning of the XXth century. The starting point of this investigation is represented by the analysis of the instances of those German scholars who stressed the need to abandon the legal models created by the Pandect-science and to recover the social role of private law.

Abstract

The aim of this article is to investigate the origins of the concept of worthiness of private law elaborated by Emilio Betti that was inserted in the Italian Civil code of 1942, in the light of the legal and cultural circumstances that developed between the end of the XIXth and the beginning of the XXth century. The starting point of this investigation is represented by the analysis of the instances of those German scholars who stressed the need to abandon the legal models created by the Pandect-science and to recover the social role of private law. On the contrary, Betti wanted to create new legal concepts on the basis of a modern and up-to-date dogmatics founded on Roman law, even if he intended to reject the nineteenth-century liberal and bourgeois postulates. This study will eventually offer a comparison on the use of legal general clauses between Betti’s perspective and the approach adopted by the German scholars at the time of the Nazi regime.
