This was, for example, a gentlemen`s agreement between Italy and the United Kingdom of 2 January 1937, which preceded the Easter Accords. A gentlemen`s agreement (in English, with the literal meaning of “gentleman es agreement”) is an informal agreement between two parties, usually written orally or less often. It is essentially based on the assumption that both parties will respect the word for their own honour, since, unlike a formal contract, it cannot be defended by the courts. In the absence of enforced prejudice, it is generally accepted that incitement not to breach a gentlemen`s agreement is the reciprocal opportunity to comply with it (e.g. .B benefit to both parties or limitation of damage or risk that could be worse without agreement for both). . . .
