The Italian Justice System

Someone asked me to share my opinion of the Italian legal or justice system based upon my experiences here.

Well, while the hall of justice in Pistoia itself was beautiful, my glimpse at the legal process here revealed something horrifying - the system's inefficiencies. I testified in a case that originated from an accident four years ago. Apparently, the lawyers expect this case to drag on for at least two, if not four, more years. And its a straight-forward product liability claim...justice delayed is justice denied, no?
