The significant transformations that took place in Europe during the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century provided the background for one of the most intense periods in the history of the legal culture. The legal movements which in Italy, France and Germany led to changes in the concept and in the method of law seemed to be inspired by a common mood. The energies of the Italian «Social School of Law» crossed the apprehensions of the French judicial “renaissance” and the challenges of the German «Freirechtsbewegung», entwining one with the other, following congruent paths, drawing from the same scientific believes. The non-orthodox elements of the European legal culture shared a common intolerance towards paralysis, a system of legal sources monopolyzed by the statute-law and a law shaped around individualism. They established «dialogues in parallel», for the most part independently of each other.
