Tonucci & Partners has successfully represented the St. Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre in an Italian court against the Rome Opera Theater.

The case involved a claim for damages allegedly suffered by the Rome Opera Theater arising from, according to Tonucci & Partners, "the supposedly binding value of a letter of intent about the collaboration between the Rome Opera Theater and St. Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre ... on a series of concerts for the celebration of the 180th anniversary of the foundation of the Russian theater."

The court agreed with the St. Petersburg Mussorgsky State Academic Opera and Ballet Theatre's main argument that letters of intent in international practice are not binding as a matter of principle, despite the “substantialist” doctrine that legal documents need to be interpreted on the basis of their content. 

The Tonucci & Partners team consisted of Partner Alessandro Varrenti and Of Counsel Valentino Vescio di Martirano.
