In 2019 Italian Legislation granting the Government special powers in strategic sectors was modified in order to strengthen the protection of essential interests such as defense and national security. At European Union level, the newly adopted Regulation (EU) 2019/452 established a framework for the screening of foreign direct investments into the Union with the aim to safeguard security and public order. This paper, after a short review of the evolution of the Italian Legislation, focuses on the provisions of the new EU framework. Then it analyzes the Italian institute of golden power in light of the recent legislation evolution. The paper ends with a few concluding remarks.
