This document is the written testimony submitted to the Italian Chamber of Deputies Justice and Finances Committees for their joint hearing on the Italian corporate law reform, held November 27, 2002. The hearing took place after the Government had issued a first draft legislative decree implementing the Parliament's mandate to reform Italian corporate law. The testimony calls for a more flexible regime especially for non-listed corporations and suggests to amend the Government's draft so as to grant more leeway to contractual freedom. Suggestions cover, inter alia, the following issues: shareholder agreements, limits on deviations from one-share-one-vote, legal capital rules, general meetings, self-dealing, liability suits, and corporate groups.
