The proceedings of the conference held on 24th
January 2020 in Florence are focused on the Italian philosopher of law Antonio
Zanfarino (Sassari, 1931 - Florence, 2019). The contributions, that shed a
light on his scientific and didactic activity, are followed by the testimonies
of friends and colleagues. The last part is therefore dedicated to specific
aspects of his thought and research interests, such as totalitarianism and the
idea of freedom.
