Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The essay addresses the relationship between causality and scientific uncertainty under multiple perspective angles. The aim of the work is to analyze the "resistance" of the causal link, as described in the model of the criminal event law, in the face of the challenges posed by the risk phenomenologies that characterize modernity. The essay critically analyzes those jurisprudential and doctrinal orientations, which tend to adapt the contents of the causal link to the test requirements and which see in the criminal law principles an obstacle to be overcome for an effective response to the victims' requests. On the contrary, according to the author, the rigidity of the criminal event law represents not only a normative value to be preserved but also a stimulus for a more modern and effective criminal policy in compliance with the extrema ratio fee.
