AIR and VIR: tools for implementing the quality of standardization

It is possible to download, from the official page of the General Advocacy of the State, the review relating to the Acts of Convengo: "For an observatory of litigation as a tool for regulatory quality. The containment of public spending and economic development" held in Rome, at the General Advocacy of the State, last 24 May 2018.

The cosmic void

The definition of emptiness applies to many cases, maintaining the common characteristic of generating a sense of anguish in those who enter it.
The most disturbing perhaps that of quantum physics, which defines the void as the main element of the Universe, which hides within itself infinite surprises: to the point of saying that "a bit 'of emptiness contains energy that can destroy the whole planet Earth".
What does this have to do with the game and in particular with the public game? We explain it.

The sentence of the Constitutional Court n. 27 of 2018

The constitutional court with the sentence no. 27/2018, published on 14.02.2018, spoke on three issues raised in 2015 by the Provincial Tax Commission of Rieti, relating to the constitutional legitimacy of the Single Tax on Bets and Predictions, governed by Legislative Decree no. 504/1998, as amended by the art. 1, paragraph 66, lett. b) of Law 220/2010 (2011 Stability Law).

The network

Last week the news of yet another round against criminal associations. There is talk of over 30 arrests and - of course (sic) - of the involvement of some of those arrested with the gaming industry. This seems to be the aspect that most interests in the media. However, regardless of all the guarantees of the law and the benefit of the principle, shared or not, which says that until the final sentence is presumed innocence, there is an element that is never put in the obvious evidence by the press: if it's illegal gambling, there's a legal game that does not deserve public ridicule!

The obscurantist respectability

Pierluigi Battista (author of a beautiful and disturbing article in the Corriere del 21 gennaio u.s.) allows us to use the concept he expressed, for what the public gaming sector is going through in Italy. The occasion is given by the issue of the amendments approved recently to the Tuscany regional law n. 57/13, which again brings us back to a strange context, that of obscurantist respectability.

The online announcement: yet it moves

In the end, the wait was not disappointed, the ban on remote gaming concessions was finally published.

Not surprisingly, shortly after the dissolution of the rooms, proving that the stalemate was (and for some other aspects, unfortunately still is ...) mainly due to so-called political reasons. "So to speak", because the level of debate has fallen low, very low.

The Budget Law 2018

At the session of December 23, the Senate Hall finally approved, in third reading, the State Budget for the 2018 financial year and the multi-year budget for the three-year period 2018-2020 with 140 yes and 97 no. The question of confidence had been placed on the Budget law on the approval of article 1 of the text transmitted by the Chamber and the House renewed confidence in the Government.

Unified Conference

Mysterious object but not too much

It continues to report the publication of regulations - in Sardinia that of Porto Torres is the last in chronological order - which drastically compress the collection of lawful gaming. Unfortunately, accompanied by a certain inertia of operators in the sector, who do not care enough about the "last mile": the exhibitors.

The budget law: the "yes" of the Senate

The Senate Chamber voted for the government's confidence in the draft Budget Law 2018, which also includes provisions on games, with 149 votes in favor and 93 against, on the text resulting from the work of the fifth committee and with some corrections and additions of character institutional and technical. Approved the variation note, in turn approved by the Council of Ministers, the final ok arrived with 136 votes.

The political apathy of the Piemonte case

The regional law of Piemonte n. 9/2016, with effect from 20 November, has imposed the removal of all slots installed in commercial establishments, including tobacconists, located near sensitive places such as schools, hospitals, places of worship and aggregation centers in general.
