Course unit content

The course illustrates the main problems relating to administrative law, within the scientific disciplinary sector both the legal discipline of the environment and that of the landscape are placed, which therefore refer to two different regulatory sets. For both, however, it is necessary to start from the indicated common to the SS10 and therefore it is necessary to mention the most relevant legal institutions that govern them starting from the concepts of a) legality and b) procedure. Having said this, we will then briefly deal with: 1) the historical evolution, internal, community and international environmental regulations; 2) the administrative organization of the environment and institutional subjects that are an expression of it; 3) the classification and dynamics of administrative procedures relating to the environment; 4) the historical evolution and the juridical notion of the landscape; 5) the institutional subjects who are authorized to do so; 6) the identification, control and management of landscape assets; 7) the planning function, the sanctions and the differentiated safeguards for the environment and the landscape.
