The article analyses the content of three referring orders (from Court of Messina, Torino and Perugia) challenging the new electoral statute approved by Italian Parliament (l. n. 52/2015). The analysis is carried out against the background of the most recent case law of the Italian Constitutional Court. In the judgment n. 1/2014, indeed, the Court tried to shed a light on the notions of “freedom” and “personality” of the voting right in a really innovative way. The Author specially focuses on controversial profiles stemming from the new orders, paying special attention to the “majority bonus” and to the run-off second ballot, as well as to the system of “partially blocked lists”.
