The Tribunal of Florence addressed the issue relating to the request for compensation for (moral) damage by a person suffering from tetraplegia when boarding a flight and expressed the view that the hypothesis of responsibility for social contact is configurable. Even in the absence of a specific contractual link, the parties in question came into contact as a result of the transport contract that was concluded. In fact, it is a situation in which the mandatory relationship finds its grounds on a specific relationship between specific subjects, which, alt-hough not formally having a contractual source, is able to produce direct mandatory effects, which can be framed both in scope of art. 1173 of the Italian Civil Code (such as «other acts or facts capable of producing mandatory effects in accordance with the legal system») and in the context of liability for non performance pursuant to art. 1218 of the Italian Civil Code.
