maurizio d'albora and benedetta bruno of carnelutti studio in naples successfully assisted the anas before of the court of cassation

The Court of Cassation, with two recent ordinances (no. 14377/2021 and 14375/2021), has established the principle that the costs of the reconstruction of the post-earthquake of 1980 in Irpinia are borne by the State. 

In the present case, the Court upheld the appeals of Anas, successfully assisted by Maurizio d’Albora and Benedetta Bruno of the Carnelutti studio in Naples, seeking reimbursement of the costs incurred in the reconstruction of important road axes. 

The principle sanctioned by the Court is particularly important because, by affirming the unfoundedness, in fact and in law, of the unjust discrimination made according to the different nature of the works carried out, it will be able to explain its effects in multiple judgments still in progress before the trial courts.
