    The book aims to provide an overview of the substantive and procedural rules of the International Criminal Court, the first permanent tribunal established as you can read in the Preamble of its statute, approved in Rome in 1998 to put an end to impunity for the perpetrators of the most serious crimes that threaten the international community: genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and aggression. The court, active since 2001, spiritual heir of the Nuremberg Tribunal and of the Tribunal of Rwanda and former Yugoslavia, differs significantly for its wider independence, its special attention to comply with the guarantees of the accused and the interests of victims, in a difficult balance between common law and civil law, including the desire for reconstructing the historical truth and the needs of a fair trial. There is also an analysis of the recent Italian adaptation law, which is incomplete and disappointing in many aspects.
