Abstract

The analysis of findings of Alessandro D’Azzia – Attorney General at the Court of Appeal of Naples – concerning a fideicommissum dating from 1706, has enabled us to highlight the main characteristics of neapolitan legal science of XIX Century. As Azzia, neapolitan jurists pass through by jurisprudencial system of the ancient regime to legal system without too much trouble. They apply the provisions of Napoleonic Code but don’t forget their legal tradition. In particular, they make frequent use of Roman law, of humanistic legal science, of ancient regime neapolitan case law. They also cite french doctrine and jurisprudence. All these legal sources harmoniously contribute to configure a composite dialectic, necessary to resolve controversial legal questions.
