Cookie Policy

This site uses cookies.

This website uses technical cookies to ensure proper operation of procedures and to improve the experience of using online applications. This text provides information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how they are used by the site and how to manage them.


Cookies are small text files that sites visited by users send to their terminals, where they are stored and then sent back to the same sites the next time they are visited. The cookies of the so-called “third parties” are, instead, set up by a different website from the one the user is visiting. This is because on each site there may be elements (images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains, etc..) that reside on servers other than that of the site visited.

Types of cookies

Depending on the characteristics and use of cookies, different categories can be distinguished:

  • Technical cookies Technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of “transmitting a communication over an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary for the provider of an information society service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user to provide such a service” (see art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). They are not used for further purposes and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be divided into browsing or session cookies, which guarantee the normal website navigation and use. Analytics cookies are similar to technical cookies and are used directly by the site manager to collect aggregated information on the number of Users and how they visit the site. Functionality cookies allow the User to browse according to a series of selected criteria to improve the service. The installation of such cookies does not require the prior consent of the users. However, the obligation to provide information pursuant to art. 13 of the Code, that the site operator, if it uses only such devices, may provide in the manner it deems most appropriate, remains unaffected.
  • Profiling cookies. Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages according to the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the web. Because of the particular invasiveness that such devices may have in the private sphere of users, the European and Italian legislation requires that the user must be adequately informed about their use and thus express their valid consent. Article 122 of the Code refers to them where it states that “the storage of information in the terminal equipment of a contractor or a user or access to information already stored is permitted only under the condition that the contractor or user has given his consent after being informed in the simplified manner referred to in Article 13, paragraph 3” (Article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). This site does not use profiling cookies.

Cookie analytics

Google Analytics. The site also includes components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). These cookies are used for the sole purpose of monitoring and improving the performance of the site. For further information, please refer to the following link:

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or any logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” the closing of the browser and are also available on subsequent visits of the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is fixed by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.

Cookies management

You can decide whether or not to accept cookies by using your browser settings.
Warning: disabling all or part of the technical cookies may compromise the optimal use of the site.
Disabling “third party” cookies does not in any way affect your browsing experience. The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third party” cookies.

As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools->Options->Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept different types of cookies and remove them. On the Internet you can easily find documentation on how to set the rules for managing cookies for your browser, for example, we give some addresses for the main browsers:



Internet Explorer: in-internet-explorer-9
