European private law is in the making. Many scholarly and official projects tackle the many issues that unfold in the path of a more uniform European legal culture. None of such projects has been as thorough and patient in trying to develop a general knowledge on how things are in the early-21st century in the landscape of European private law as the ""Common Core of European Private Law Project"", launched in Trento, Italy in 1993 with the direct involvement of the Late Professor R.B. Schlesinger. Within the Common Core Project, over 200 professionals apply a painstaking comparative analysis of European legal systems in the domain of contracts, property and torts. Every year in Trento leading scholars address the plenary session where the active participants convene to discuss methodological and practical problems that emerge from their collective comparative effort. This book is a collection of the views of the importance and stakes of the making of European Private Law as presented in the papers delivered at the Trento plenary sessions.
