In a controversial matter such as cloning the study of the treatment that it raises in the first technological, political and cultural power is essential. Its role, in many ways, on the leading of the Humanity progress deserves a detailed attention. Moral pluralism in a country where various ethical-religious traditions converge and coexist, the kaleidoscopic legal structure of a Federal State, the strength of its biotechnology industry, the passion for research that crosses the nation and the frontier spirit in facing new challenges become the first power pioneer in many social phenomena and a mirror to look at other countries in an attempt to emulate its achievements (or to follow in its mistakes). The debate on the constitutionality of cloning hinges on the ability of public authorities to interfere in personal decisions and on the existence of more valuable public interest that justify such intervention. This article also discusses the criteria for awarding the regulation of cloning to the federation or to the states.
