During their normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire some personal data whose communication is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. This information is not collected with the intention of associating it with identified users but, by its very nature, could lead to the identification of users through processing and association with data held by third parties.

This category of data includes, IP addresses or domain names of computers used by people who connect to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file received in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the reply given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters regarding the operating system and computer environment of the user.

This data is only used to obtain anonymous statistical information regarding use of the website and to check its correct functioning. It is immediately erased after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in case of computerised crimes to the detriment of the website.



The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, which is necessary for responding to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Specific summary information will be shown or displayed continually on web pages dedicated to particular on-demand services.



Like virtually all websites, ours too uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user (but also other sites or webservers) send and record on your computer (or mobile device), to then be retransmitted to those same sites (or webservers) upon the user’s next visit, thus sending such information.

Cookies are nowadays essential tools as they permit modern sites to run smoothly, allowing maximum customisation, interaction and fluidity in navigation. But they can also be used to monitor user navigation and then send advertising messages based on such navigation.


Cookies can be:

Session-based (if they expire upon closing of the browser) or permanent (if they remain until the expiry of a time limit, which could be years)

First-party or third-party (in this second case they are set by a website or a webserver other than the one that the user is visiting at that moment)

Technical (necessary, even indispensable, for a full – or improved – use of the site) or profiling (aimed at creating a user profile in order to then send advertising messages to him/her in line with the preferences expressed by the individual during prior navigation)

The Data Protection Authority considers session-based, operational and – only under certain conditions – analytical cookies to be technical cookies. In particular the Authority, in its decision of May 8th, 2014, pointed out that the latter may be treated as technical cookies only if used for the purposes of site optimisation directly by the owner of the site itself, who may collect aggregate information on the number of users and how they visit the site.

For more information on the types of cookies, features and how they work, you can visit the websites,,, and the specific Decision of the Authority mentioned above.

The user can choose whether to delete, or block, some (or all) of the cookies through the configuration of his/her browser. Normally these programs also allow, through a specific option, to block third-party cookies. Each browser has different procedures for the management of cookies; below are the links to the specific instructions for the most popular browsers:

Please note that disabling cookies altogether in the browser may leave you unable to use all our interactive features.



Apart from what is specified for navigation data, the user is free to provide the personal data listed in application forms. If this data is not submitted, it may be impossible to fulfil the request.



Personal data is processed by automated tools only for the time strictly required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In order to prevent data loss, abuse, incorrect use and unauthorised access, specific security measures have been implemented.



The people to whom the personal data refers have the right at any time to obtain confirmation of the existence or otherwise of such data and to know its content and origin, verify its accuracy or request updating or additions to it, as well its correction (Art. 7 of Decree Law 196/2003).

Pursuant to the same article, the interested parties have the right to request the cancellation, transformation into anonymous form or blocking of data processed in breach of the law, as well as to oppose its processing for legitimate reasons.
