Keywords: Albanian Civil Code, Italian Civil Code, Acquisition of Ownership.
In the 1990s, Albania faced the transformation of communist property into private property.
This paper studies the political-ideological elements for the transformation of communist property.
In addition, this scientific contribution aims to show the impact of the Italian civil code
by examining in particular the part related to acquisition of ownership. The authors choose
this part since the ways of acquisition of property demonstrate the intervention of the State
in private property. Furthermore, the acquisition of ownership is also codified in the Albanian
Constitution of 1998 by considering it as a constitutional norm. In the conclusions, this contribution
shows different legal reasons for the Italian impact on the Albanian civil code of 1994.
