The right of authorship

​The author shall have the right to claim to be publicly identified as the creator of his works, and such right of authorship may be exercised at any time (art. 20 of Italian Copyright Law).

That means also the right to communicate his work on an anonymous basis or under a pseudonym, retaining the right to be identified, at any time, as the author of the work by the competent courts. (art. 21 of Italian Copyright Law).

The author may exercise such right either by claiming to be identified as the creator of his work or requiring to put his name on each copy of the work or to specify it in each event of public use and communication such as the performance, cinema projection, radio and television broadcast, recital and so forth.
