ABSTRACT

On January 28, 2014, in the University of Rome III, a conference took place over two sessions on the Law and Cosmetics, focusing on Regulations, Responsibilities and Bioethics. As one of the speakers at the conference, Professor Francesca Rescigno of the University of Bologna has created the following chronicle of the conference (text in Italian).
Cosmetics are an important industry which has seen no decline in recent years. But what is most interesting for readers here is how the author highlights that one of the EU prohibition on animal testing for cosmetics shows that ¨…Europe has demonstrated…that the time is now ripe for the recognition of animal subjectivity¨, a step which would lead away from the previous classification of animals as res (things) at the disposal of humans.
