Abstract

The paper provides a synthetic overview of the Corte d’Assise: a collegial judicial organ, formed by two professional judges (giudici togati) along with six lay judges (giudici popolari), implementing the con- stitutional principle set forth by the third paragraph of Article 102 of the Constitution, which expressly recognises the ‘direct participation of the people in the administration of justice’. After retracing the origins and historical evolution of the Corte d’Assise, this paper highlights strengths and weaknesses of the role played by the lay judge in the Italian criminal trial.
L’article fournit une illustration critique des règles régissant la Corte d’assise italienne : un organe juridictionnel, composé à la fois de juges professionnels et de juges populaires, mettant en œuvre le principe constitutionnel énoncé au troisième alinéa de l'article 102 de la Constitution italienne, qui reconnaît expressément « la participation directe du peuple à l'administration de la justice ». Après avoir retracé les origines et l'évolution historique de l'institution, cet examen met notamment en évidence les points forts et les faiblesses inhérentes au rôle joué par la composante populaire dans l'expérience du procès pénal italien.
