The use of comparative methods in the construction of labour law in the West has a longer history than labour law itself. The comparison of legislation, the circulation of institutional models and the sharing of interpretative paradigms are some of the features of a widespread practice that characterised labour law culture at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.They contributed to defining the sources of national law, but also to activating European legal reflection on the hypotheses of international labour law. The paper deals with the intertwining of these themes and tries to examine the methods and the subject of the legal culture in an Italian journal of the early 20th century.
