Abstract

Besides sharing a common cultural background, Italy and Spain also share a similar institutional framework. Both are unitary states in the European Union that have devolved responsibilities of mandatory services to be provided nationwide at the sub-national level within rules set at the Constitutional level. The Editorial explores the main issues and suggests that incompleteness of Constitutions is at the heart of current problems in both countries.
