In the first part of the essay the author puts forward a rather demanding model of constitutional democracy, stressing the problems which derive from the tensions arising between the elements of the liberal tradition Ñ the limits to be imposed on political power, and more generally on any kind of power Ñ and those belonging to the democratic tradition, based on the distribution of the same power in equal quota among citizens and on the sovereignty of the legislative body which represents them. In the second part, after stressing the need of some social rights, next to civil and political rights, as preconditions of the model, the author tries to test the ÇuniversalÈ viability of such model at the light of economic and financial globalization.
