I would like to call a previous equation into the function Function. If a =
type directly the expression or copy paste it, it works. However, when I ca=
ll the expression by its name it does not.

Since the function "Function" has HoldAll attribute, the expressions
in its arguments are not evaluated by default.Try:

Function[##, Evaluate[ ll]] & @@ {Listp}
