Privacy policy, cookies and processing of personal data

Information provided pursuant to Article 13 of Legislative Decree No. 196/2003 to visitors of the website and users of the services offered by the same, starting from the address (, excluding external links.

The data collected through this site are divided into:

Navigation data
This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation addresses of the resources requested, and other parameters connected with the http protocol and relating to the user's operating system and computer environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site: apart from this possibility, at present the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.

Data provided voluntarily by the user
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this site entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender's address, which is necessary to reply to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.


A cookie is a small file that is sent to your browser and saved on your device when you visit a website, in our case: ('the Site').
Cookies allow the site to function efficiently and improve its performance, and may also provide information to the site owner for statistical or advertising purposes, mainly to personalise your browsing experience by remembering your preferences (e.g. to remember the language and currency you have set, to recognise you on your next visit, etc.).
Essentially, two macro-categories of cookies can be identified: profiling cookies for which the user's consent is required (aimed at creating profiles relating to the user and generally used to display personalised advertisements on websites) and technical cookies as defined below: technical cookies are those used for the sole purpose of "carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications 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 service" (Art. 122, paragraph 1, of Legislative Decree 196/2003 "Privacy Code").
Cookies are also distinguished according to the party installing them, depending on whether it is the same operator of the site visited (so-called 'first-party cookies') or a different party (so-called 'third-party cookies').

All cookies installed on our site (both 'first party' and 'third party') are only and exclusively 'technical' cookies for which the user's consent is not required.
They are not used for any other purpose and are normally installed directly by the owner or operator of the website. They can be subdivided into navigation or session cookies, which ensure normal navigation and use of the website by allowing, for example, a purchase to be made or authentication to access reserved areas); analytics cookies, assimilated to technical cookies where they are used directly by the website operator to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a set of selected criteria (e.g. language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.
Below is a list for explanatory purposes:

Browsing cookies on the site: 
From the first access, these cookies enable the site to function correctly and allow you to view content on your device by recognising the language and market of the country from which you have chosen to connect. If you are a registered user, they allow them to recognise you and to access the services offered in the dedicated areas. The navigation cookies are technical cookies and are necessary for the site to function.
These cookies make it possible, on the basis of your expressed request, to recognise you on subsequent visits so that you do not have to enter your data on each visit (e.g. 'recognise me next time').

Analytical cookies on the site: 
These cookies are used to process statistical analyses of how users navigate on our site. We process the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes.

Social network cookies on the site: 
These cookies are necessary to allow your social account to interact with our site. They are used, for example, to let you express your appreciation and share it with your social friends. Social network cookies are not necessary for browsing.

How can I disable cookies and manage my preferences? 
Most browsers are configured to accept, control or possibly disable cookies through their settings. Please note, however, that disabling navigation or functional cookies may cause the site to function incorrectly and/or limit the service we offer, making it less interactive and less personalised.
