prof. Conte suggested a couple of challanging exercises. Some of you could try to apply the idea of narrative NOT to national identity or similar things, but to single legal institutions, using the following texts, avalable in our library, which are also translated in Italian:
Foegen, M.-T., Roemische Rechtsgeschichten: ueber Ursprung und Evolution eines sozialen Systems, Goettingen 2003 [It. translation “Storie di diritto romano”, a cura di A. Mazzacane]
Also a link between narrative and private law can be found in “Der Kampf um’s Recht” [“La lotta per il diritto”/”The Struggle for the Right”] a real “classic” by R. Jhering, with reference to Kleist’s Novel “Michael Kohlhaas”.
