To curate this symposium on a recent piece of Professor Paolo Carrozza is a pleasure and a challenge. Professor Carrozza’s thinking is dense with suggestions: it is not a coincidence that it took us more than 100 pages to comment his 20-page article. Like holy texts and badly drafted law, his writing elicits endless commentary.
Besides being an exquisite thinker and an academic titan, Professor Carrozza is an amiable friend and a loyal mentor to us all. The colleagues and friends who joined this symposium have worked with Professor Carrozza, and we owe him a great deal of learning. This is a motley crew: the authors include comparative constitutional lawyers, public international lawyers, European Union lawyers, and several other subdivisions not worth listing. This is not a coincidence: the variety of our backgrounds (foregrounds?) is a confirmation of the extraordinary curiosity, intelligence, leadership and eclectic nature of our mentor, who guided us especially in the early years of our education, encouraging us to explore areas going beyond his vast comfort zone (not to mention ours).
