Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The COVID-19 crisis has made institutions and citizens "discover", but also to scientists and experts, that science is uncertain and that its uncertainties they are amplified when it is called to inform and guide laws and policy measures. Moreover, even though it has been themed for at least twenty years as a likely event to prepare for, the pandemic itself has been reported as an unpredictable "surprise". In reality, scientific uncertainty as a normative problem has been discussed for decades in the literature of science policy and law, but it has been systematically marginalized as an alleged expression of anti-scientific views. The following pages illustrate some aspects of the panorama on uncertainty and report some new territories revealed by the pandemic, with particular reference to the Italian situation. These are some forms of scientific-institutional uncertainty, that is to say uncertainties that have arisen by a lack of institutional awareness of complex interactions between science, policy and law.
