Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The author, starting from the analysis of two fundamental sentences of the penal section of the IV Court of Cassation, analyzes the issue of probationary and judgment rules in the context of the penal process, highlighting how the Italian criminal law tradition, already from the time of the Classical School and of his most illustrious exponent, Francesco Carrara, he has always identified as a fundamental objective of the process that of reaching an ascertainment of the responsibility of the accused in terms of certainty. In the absence of this assessment, the principle of Romanist tradition "in dubio pro reo" can only lead to the neutralization of the accusatory hypothesis and the pronouncement of an acquittal sentence.
