Pio Caroni

Pio Caroni

Pio Caroni, born in 1938 in Ticino (Switzerland), concluded his studies in jurisprudence at the University of Berne, after having been abroad in Germany and Italy. In 1971, he was called on the chair for legal history at the same University, where he remained for more than thirty years, and where he signed as a rector later in his academical career. After having published a monography on Swiss constitutionalism (“Il dualismo costituzionale svizzero”, Milano 1964), he remained faithful to his Italian-speaking origin and frequented the institutes of the Universities of Milano and Firenze, and he also participated in the well-known “Centro di studi per la storia del pensiero giuridico moderno”.
