The cause of the residence
Among the cases dealt with by the Bologna Door, one in particular has taken on considerable importance for the realization of the objectives of the project. The group of Lawyers Road has faced a lawsuit against the City of Bologna pilot, for the protection of the right to residence. That of the residence, in fact, is a problem that often face Lawyers Road. "The right to a residence is contemplated by the Constitution - says Antonio Mumolo - but many governments find it difficult to recognize those citizens who for one reason or another, can be found in the street. Then we come. "
The legal action was necessary because of the unlawful conduct held by the Municipality of Bologna, which had refused a homeless person a subjective right, the residence. L’utente, we'll call Mario (invented name), in 1997 it seeks to obtain residence in the Municipality of Bologna. After four years of evasive responses by the institutions in which he could not even know his position on the waiting list for the residence, in March 2001 Mr.. Mario enlists the help of operators Street Lawyer. As a first step Lawyer suggests Road to resubmit a request to the City of Bologna residence, to get away from Sabatucci 2, the place where Mr.. Mario was the resident 1999. In addition to renewing its request, Mr.. Mario asked for clarification on the operation of the grant of residence in the Municipality of Bologna and the progress of the practice that he was concerned. The answer, This time not long in coming, is surprising. Four years after the first request, the procedure for the granting of residence to Mr.. Mario had not yet begun.
Nell'aprile of 2001 Mr.. Mario is addressed on an urgent basis the Court of Bologna, to assert their rights as citizens. This time, just seven days after submission of the application, The Court granted Mr Bologna. Mario the right to residence, and condemns the Municipality of Bologna to pay the costs. Mr. Mario, After an odyssey of four years, can finally get to enjoy their rights as citizens. May re-enroll in the professional registers of their class, and return to work.
This measure, unique in Italy, is an important legal precedent.
