Learning outcomes

The course aims to analyse the statutory regulation of the tourism, with attention also to the European and international regulations. At the end, the student has to demonstrate to know the different regulations and to be able to explain them in an appropriate language.


Notions of public law (with particular regard to the sources of state and regional law, for the division of powers between State and Regions, for sources of the European Union). Particular attention will be given to the study of constitutional jurisprudence for the fundamental role in the definition of the subject.
The individual contracts that best characterized this sector will be studied. Particular attention will be reserved to the study of the contracts of the hotel business and the travel contract. In the latter case, we will trace the jurisprudential and doctrinal evolution that the notion of damage from ruined holiday has undergone until its definition with the legislative decree n. 79 of 2011.
The theme of tourism professions will also be considered.
