This paper examines the development of case law regarding protection of disabled people from discrimination in fields other than employment in Italy. The Italian legal system has two main anti-discrimination laws: the Decreto Legislativo 216/2003 and Law no. 67/2006. The Decreto Legislativo was enacted to implement the EU Framework Directive 2000/78. The EU Directive establishes a general framework on equal treatment in employment and occupation. Law 67/2006 was enacted to provide protection from discrimination for disabled people in all aspects of their lives not covered by the EU Directive.
