The legislation regulating criminal justice does not contemplate an organic treatment of the defendant’s mental disorder. Even the definitions provided by the legislature in the few provisions on the subject do not always consider the progress made by science. So, their interpretation often requires Courts and scholars to intervene. Starting from this premise, the article focuses on the main moments in which mental disorders intersect criminal proceedings, highlighting the difficult coexistence of the interests - all of constitutional and conventional rank - at stake: the right to health, to freedom and the celebration of a ‘fair’ trial, on the one hand; the collective interest in the repression of crimes and the containment of social dangerousness, on the other hand.
Keywords: Criminal proceedings; mental disorder; security measures; expert evidence.
