The paper About the Work of Luca Antonini on "Federalismo all’italiana": or else about his Elliptical Thinking, by Federico Pica, has for object the wide and detailed reconstruction proposed by Luca Antonini on the vicissitudes of the "fiscal federalism", in Italy. Antonini is the chairman of the Joint Technical Commission for the Implementation of Fiscal Federalism, established by the Italian government, to exercise, among other things, the function of "acquiring and processing cognitive elements for the elaboration of the contents of the legislative decrees". He is the principal advisor of the Minister Calderoli, who tied to his name the Act which regulates today the Italian electoral system (so called "porcellum") and also the rules for applying the "fiscal federalism". The paper presented here is a systematic and radical criticism of the Antonini’s views and also of the implementing measures of the "federalist" reform.

Keywords: Intergovernmental Relations; Fiscal Federalism; Standard Costs; Essential Levels of Performance; Fiscal Equalization.
