Browsing data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.

This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but which by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified.

This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, the addresses with URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s IT environment.

This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site, checking its correct functioning and keeping track of user behaviour.

Data provided voluntarily by the user

The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of emails to the addresses indicated on this site entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Specific summary information will be progressively reported or displayed on the pages of the site set up for particular services on request.


To make this site work well or to offer you advertising messages in line with your needs, we sometimes install small data files called “cookies” on your device. They may involve the transmission of information between the website and your device, and between the latter and other sites that operate on our behalf or privately, in accordance with what is established in the respective Privacy Policy. We may use cookies to bring together the information we collect about you. You can decide to receive a warning each time a cookie is sent or to disable all cookies by changing your browser settings.

There are different types of cookies which are classified based on their use, data stored and duration.

  • Session or temporary cookies are those that expire or are deleted when the browser is closed, while persistent cookies have longer expiries (from a few minutes to entire months) depending on the functions they perform. It is precisely these functions that distinguish cookies into two categories: technical and non-technical (or profiling).
  • Technical cookies manage the data necessary for the provision of pages and facilitate navigation, allowing, for example, not having to re-enter username and password to access particular services, remembering the last page visited or up to what point you have seen a video, to recognize the type of device in use and to adapt the size of the images accordingly. Technical cookies also allow aggregate statistical analyses to be carried out on the most visited pages and user preferences, but only in anonymous form, and are not used to analyse the behaviour or preferences of individual users.
  • Profiling cookies, on the other hand, are used to analyse the interests and browsing habits of individual users, to personalise browsing and provide, for example, content, including advertising, targeted to particular interests.

Cookies can be provided directly by the manager of the site you are browsing (first-party cookies) or, if the site relies on external services for particular functions, by third parties (third-party cookies).

This site may use technical, session and profiling cookies (first and third parties).

The site without consent only instals Technical Cookies: Generic JavaScript control cookies. These cookies are used by many web application frameworks and content management systems (e.g. WordPress) to check whether the Client browser supports JavaScript to enable a better user experience on the website.

The site makes use of the following third-party services that can generate profiling cookies, subject to consent:

  • Google Fonts (Google Inc.)
