Two legislative proposals about commons in Tuscany

On Wednesday, October 15th, from 10.00 a.m., the First Standing Council Committee (Institutional Affairs, Programming and Budget, information and communication) of the Tuscany Regional Council will discuss about two legislative proposals on commons:

  • the law proposal n. 219 is about social subsidiarity and civic collaboration for the management of commons, pursuant to Articles 58 and 59 of the Statute;
  • the law proposal n. 225 is about the shared government of commons and the government of the areas, in order to promote the social subsidiarity and the implementation of Articles 58 and 59 of the Statute.

The audition will take place in Florence, at the premises of the Regional Council.

Professor Christian Iaione , LabGov’s co-founder and scientific director, will be a member of the Council Committee.

The Statute of Tuscany incorporates the principle of horizontal subsidiarity provided by Article 118, fourth paragraph, of the Constitution as a principle of social subsidiarity. Pursuant to Article 58, the Region alignes its activities to the principle of subsidiarity, in order to bring the organization of social life and the exercise of public functions closer to citizens. The Region fosters, pursuant to Article 59, the own initiative of citizens and their aggregations for the direct conduct of activities in the public interest; the implementation of the principle of social subsidiarity is a priority aimed at improving the level of services, overcoming both economic and social inequalities, to encourage the collaboration of citizens and social groups.
