Principal aims

CRED plays the strategic role of the first research centre that directs all its tasks to the survey of aesthetics of law, issue as ancient as innovative for philosophy of law and juridical sciences. Trailblazing studies pointed out a connection between law and aesthetics, that now draws the attention of an increasing number of scientists, interested in aesthetic dimension of law and its structure. This interest is evidenced by the internationality of the CRED Scientific Board and by the involvement of academics and experts from many Italian and foreign universities in all scientific works of recent years.

Research activities

CRED aims to promote initiatives and researches, to acquire a specialized library, to print a series of essays and to facilitate international academic debate about aesthetics of law. To this end, CRED wants to be not only a mere research centre, but even a open place for scholars of all nationalities who want to examine in depth aesthetics of law.
