    Taking into consideration prof. van Duyne’s paper, and with the parallel aim of providing some information on the situation in Italy and other European countries, this paper is divided into two parts. The first paragraphs contain a commentary on Prof. Van Duyne’s theoretical analysis of corruption. On the basis of the elements of corruption defined by prof. van Duyne, the opportunities and risks connected with corruption will then be identified in a theory of corruption as a rational choice, in order to delineate more appropriate policies to combat it. The situation of corruption in Italy is also briefly described. In the second part, the action against corruption is analysed and the contrast strategies introduced by some European countries, and by Italy in particular, are described.
