This article explores constitutional courts through constitutionalism. This means that the role that constitutional courts play in the current legal landscape can be seen as part of a more general evolution leading law to be perceived as something very different from a systematic set of norms hierarchically organized. In this traditional normative organization, law was perceived in a theological way, as a «command» that could not be subjected to any substantive control or supervision by courts. This vision, that was hostile to judicial supervision of statutes, can explain the late introduction of judicial review in the European legal systems. The «rights revolution» and the trend towards courts that it implies more and more changes the narration of law and turns it into justice, changing the way it was used to be perceived in European civil law countries. In the meanwhile, it is moving their center of gravity towards who says «the last word». The main idea of the article is that, consistently with this evolution of the current legal landscape, constitutional courts are first class protagonists of the constitutionalist evolution, but appear, at the same time, in a certain way «victims» of the same evolution. The development of a global «judicial dialogue» as a web connecting many judicial voices and legal traditions, in a communication that is culturally oriented and not so sensitive to hierarchical criteria, multiplies the number of subjects saying the last word. So constitutional courts can lose a little bit of their traditional position and prestige that in the past was guaranteed by the state, and are called to gain their position in the day by day battle for rights protection.
