The course is designed to teach the student the fundamental concepts pertaining
the special part of the Penal Code, with reference both to the “juridical objects” and
the “general categories” of the special part; the goal is to allow the student which
has already studied the general part of Code to apply those more general concepts
and to understand the “political dimension” of the Criminal law, which can mostly be
seen in the special part. The special attention devoted to sex crimes and crimes against minors, but also prostitution-related crimes, stalking and other offences against moral self-determination is geared towards the teaching of a method of analysis of the single provisions and to have the student learn interpretation
techniques of the same provisions.
