    This essay gives an overview of the evolving academic legal discourse on disability which is taking place in Italy. It attempts to show that the ratification of the CRPD contributed to making 'disability law' an autonomous and comprehensive area of legal studies, and to overcome (at least partially) the rigid fragmentation of the settori scientifico-disciplinari (scientific-disciplinary sectors, i.e., constitutional law, comparative law, civil law...), which is a distinctive feature of Italian academia.
