Council decision 2000/257/EC of 20 March 2000 acknowledged exceptional circumstances of compatibility with the single market regarding Italian aids disbursed along 1984/1992 to the sugar sector. It also produced many effects at european and national level. Italian financial problems of the sugar sector were solved. Furthermore, Italian political role at the forthcoming sugar international and european rounds will be maintained if not increased. For the first time, a Council decision invalidated a decision already adopted by the Commission concerning State aids. It also corroborates the growing interference of intergovernmental measures in the Commission competences. A model for Italian positive and negative behaviour at European level should be determined in the examined case as well as the requirement of a continuous revision of institutional relations. Furthermore, it allows to enter the intricate Community procedures such as the State aids.
