The article deals with selected significant decisions of the Italian Constitutional Court, which have determined the development of Community law application in the Italian legal order and can be a source of inspiration in particular for the new Member States of the European Union, including the Slovak Republic. In particular, the Italian Constitutional Court´s decisions deal with the relationship between Community law and national law, solutions of conflicts between Community law and national law concerning the application of law and the protection of the fundamental constitutional principles and human rights guaranteed by the constitution and last but not least, the relationship between the Italian Constitutional Court and the European Court of Justice.
