This research project aims at analyseing the contractual model as a tool to overcome corporate crises. To

this end, it examines the main difficulties in the application of the contractual paradigm to the domain of

insolvency, as well as perspectives on future reform.

ln particular, the research will move from the observation that, far from being mere tools of exchange and

circulation of goods, contracts have been gradually taking on a new function: allowing businesses to make the

best use of their capital even in the pathological phase of their life.

The aim of this research is thus to explore the contractual paradigm vis d vis corporate crisis, using the

categories and conceptual tools of civil law. We seek to assess all the potential of such a paradigm, in order

to draw rules and principles that can enhance the role of the interpreter and of the judge in safeguarding all

the interests involved in the conventional resolution of a crisis.
