The purpose of the paper is to analyse the possible models for the normative relation between general private law and consumer law, particularly with regard to contract law. It is proposed that the best alternative is the integration of the principles and basic rules of consumer law into the Civil Code, without prejudice of the existence of specific legislation that detail and develop those principles. In addition, the paper examines the possibility to extend the protection of private law beyond the consumer, towards a development of a system that provides the general protection of weaker parties.
