[Autom. eng. transl.] The contribution addresses - in the light of the Cassation ruling 12 July 2016, n. 14188 - the subject of the nature of pre-contractual liability. After recalling the qualifying proposals available in jurisprudence, oriented in an almost granitic manner to identify the culpa in contrahendo as Aquilian type responsibility, and in doctrine, instead strongly critical, albeit with diversity of nuances, towards the curial thesis, the Authors look at the candidacy of the art. 1218 cc to become a general rule for all cases in which it is possible to find a pre-existing relationship between injuring and damaged, whether it is already a contract or a relevant "qualified social contact" as "another act or fact suitable" to produce obligations; with the awareness, however, that the case of art. 1337 cc configures a legally relevant relationship ex se and therefore much more than a "contact". The contribution then examines the perspective of health responsibility, following the law of 8 March 2017, n. 24, and finally the profile of the compensable pre-contractual damage.
