Megaprojects Contracts: Between International Practices and Italian Law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


While megaprojects are widely investigated from an economic point of view, there are few studies that analyse them from a legal perspective. The purpose of this paper is to begin to fill this gap, delving into the role that contracts play in the implementation of megaprojects. Given the absence of any international legal framework of reference, the most commonly used contractual models (FIDIC and NEC) will be taken into consideration. After examining the main clauses of such models, their compatibility with the Italian legal system will be explored.
