Italy's Legal System and Contracts

Italy operates under codified law. Italian judges are selected professionally and judgement they render are completely governed by the law as codified in the Code of Civil Procedure, originally published in 1942. 

Italian Civil Code says a contract is the agreement between two or more parties to establish, regulate or terminate a legally formed relationship about their assets.

Parties of the agreement may freely determine the content of the contract within the limits of the law. In Italy, a contract is finalized when the party who proposed contract has knowledge of the other party's acceptance.
