Abstract

On 15 March 2017 the first book of the Chinese Civil Code, whose definitive processing is sched- uled for 2020, has been approved. This is a long-awaited achievement, whose starting point dates back to the early twentieth century, when the first draft of a Civil Code inspired by European models was prepared. The project of Civil Code in China has been part of a long lasting and com- plex process of legal reforms characterized by a vast circulation of foreign legal models, especially in the last few decades, and at the same time, by the emerging of the issue of local identity and cultural differentiation. The making of the Civil Code, the Western model par excellence for legal reforms, thus represents an interesting observatory of the evolution of the dynamics of the rela- tions between local and foreign elements. This will be the main line of reflection along which this study will be developed.
