Institutional Relations & Lobby , some clarification:
The term "institutional relations" tends to indicate those activities that aim to create or strengthen a relationship between a relational subject with interests and the decision makers, policy makers or political - institutional.
We speak specifically of lobbying activity when a body of these actions is intended to represent an interest in a professional way to a given subject towards public decision makers, with the intent to influence the opinions and choices . And thus to influence the public decision-making in favor of the interest that is lawful to represent.
According to certain there would be a substantial equivalence between the activity of institutional relations and lobbying, when in truth - for precision - the second is only a possible consequence of the former. The principle underpinning the lobbying - that to be such, must be implemented in compliance with the laws and codes of ethics governing the conduct of the parties involved - is that the public decision-maker is able to decide better for the general interest just if he knows every single interests composing it and that should be compared with impartiality.
In Italian law the main basis for the recognition and legitimacy of lobbying is made from article 50 of the Constitution which , not unlike the First Amendment to the US Constitution, provides that " All citizens may present petitions to both Parliamentary Chambers to request legislative measures or to express collective needs ."
