The Giornale di Storia costituzionale is a periodical published twice a year. It was born in 2001 with the aim
of promoting and gathering research and methodological proposals that concern the manifold paths of
constitutional history. The articles here published intend to analyse ‐ in a multidisciplinary and comparative
perspective ‐ the foundations and characters of a complex historical and cultural phenomenon which has
given birth to a common inheritance, yet with different forms and conceptions. Between present and past,
the scholars of law, politics, institutions, and more generally the experts of social sciences think and
dialogue about constitutionalism, marked by deep historical roots and growing tensions. The Giornale has
already become a meeting and reference point for the different practices of constitutional history, it
publishes essays in various languages and is characterised by thematic richness and variety in surveys,
alternating miscellaneous issues with others dedicated to monographic research. [Publisher's Text]
