The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance warmly congratulates Professor Giovanni Pitruzzella, who was appointed as a Judge to the Constitutional Court of Italy on 14 November 2023.
Mr. Pitruzzella, a former Professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Palermo (Italy), has been serving as an Advocate General at the Court of Justice since 8 October 2018 and has strong connections with our Faculty and the Department of Law. He taught in the Master in European Business Law and served as a jury member of the Thesis Supervision Committee for some of our PhD students. His lectures and discussions have received wide praise from both our students and professors, commending their quality and Mr. Pitruzzella’s ability to explain complex legal concepts in a simple way. Thanks to Mr. Pitruzzella’s invitations, our students were able to visit the Court of Justice multiple times and had the privilege of attending hearings, providing them with a valuable learning experience.
We extend our best wishes to Professor Pitruzzella in his new role.
