The article deals with the recognition of the principle of forum prorogatum in arbitrations between private parties or between private parties and foreign States. The analysis begins in the interstate jurisdictions, where the principle first developed. However, following a thorough reconstruction of international treaty law, national legislation, and relevant case law, the Author demonstrates its prevalence in private arbitration as well. The applicability of the principle of forum prorogatum in arbitral jurisdictions can be inferred from general principles of law. Nonetheless, its practicality often depends on the choices of national legislators. Consequently, forum prorogatum undoubtedly functions if the legal system in which the arbitration is being held impedes the objection of the award for reasons related to the arbitration agreement which were not contested during the course of the arbitration. On the contrary, doubts arise in the case in which that preclusive mechanism is not provided for. Nevertheless, in the Author's opinion, the principle of forum prorogatum finds application regardless of the system of preclusions, since its applicability is owed to reasons of a logicaldogmatic nature. The only limit to its practicality may be the provision of an express legal prohibition. The Author also focuses on the change introduced in Italy by the 2006 reform with the combined provision of law of articles 817, 3º co. and 819, 1º co., num. 1), c.p.c.
