[Autom. eng. transl.] The work is dedicated to a critical reflection on the relationships between efficiency and freedom, such as the normative basis of antitrust. The complex theoretical construction which, by incorporating a political perspective, a moral perspective and an economic perspective into a coherent multidisciplinary vision, has laid the foundations for building the 'normative foundation' of antitrust in the close connection between individual freedom and economic efficiency is above all revisited in a framework of the history of economic thought. This construction has found its most coherent expression in the so-called Antitrust Structuralism, but it has been subjected to criticism from the post-Chicago synthesis that is at the origin of the demand in favor of a "cheaper" approach. The positions of the contemporary economic debate (largely limited to German literature) are therefore referred to, which, seeking the normative basis of competition policy in a principle of economic freedom, are often opposed to the supporters of a "cheaper" approach. The post-Chicago synthesis is therefore revisited following a different path from the usual one, to bring out possible conditions to recover an intrinsic connection between the purpose of freedom and the purpose of economic efficiency in a manner coherent with the developments of the modern theory of the Organization industrial.
