The Italian company law reform went into force on the 1st of January 2004, introducing special rules on arbitrations arising out of arbitration clauses in articles of association. By creating an exception to ordinary rules of arbitration, the reform breaks new ground. It boldly gives arbitrators new powers, which allow the special arbitral tribunal to resemble more closely an ordinary court of law. Yet, the new Italian company law appears confined by a sadly restricted scope of application.
