A "cookie" is a text file saved on the User's computer when he/she accesses a website with the purpose of providing information every time the User returns to the same site. It is a sort of reminder of the Internet page visited. With the cookie, the web server sends information to the user's browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) which is stored on the user's computer and will be re-read and updated every time the user returns to the site. In this way the website can automatically adapt to the User. During navigation, the User may also receive cookies on his or her computer from other sites ("third party" cookies), set directly by the managers of said websites and used for the purposes and in the manner defined by them. 

Depending on their duration, they are divided into session cookies (i.e. those that are temporary and automatically deleted from the terminal at the end of the browsing session by closing the browser) and persistent cookies (i.e. those that remain stored on the terminal until they expire or are deleted by the User). Depending on the function and purpose of use, cookies can be divided into technical cookies and profiling cookies. 


Some cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and memorization of specific information on Users who access a web page. These so-called technical cookies are often useful to allow Users to navigate a website and use all of its functions. Technical cookies are those whose use does not require the User's consent. Analytical cookies also belong to this category. These are cookies that collect information about the use that a User makes of a website and that allow it to improve its functioning. For example, analytics cookies show which are the most frequently visited pages, allow to verify which are the recurring patterns of use of a website and help to understand any difficulties the User encounters in using it. 


Other cookies can instead be used to monitor and profile users during navigation, study their movements and habits of web consultation or consumption (what they buy, what they read, etc..), also in order to send targeted and personalized services advertising. In this case we speak of profiling cookies. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user pursuant to art. 7 of EU Regulation 2016/679. 


It may also happen that a web page contains cookies from other sites and contained in various elements hosted on the page itself, such as advertising banners, images, videos, maps or specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, these cookies are set directly by managers of websites or servers other than this website. We speak, in these cases, of so-called third party cookies, which are usually used for profiling purposes. The use of these cookies requires the prior acquisition of the free informed consent of the user.


The main functions of the cookies installed in the website are technical, they are used to constantly improve the Service, for authentication, for statistical purposes, such as counting visits to the site. The use of cookies is therefore strictly aimed at facilitating the functions of the server while browsing the website. 

The website also allows the following third-party cookies to be sent. These cookies are not tools of our ownership, for more information, therefore, you can access the information and consent forms of third parties by clicking on the links provided. 

In order to improve the website and understand which parts or elements are most appreciated by Users, third party Google Analytics cookies are used as an anonymous and aggregate analysis tool. These cookies are not tools of our ownership, for more information, therefore, you can consult the information provided by Google. 

The website may use the programs of hosting, cloud and infrastructure services: Netlify, Google Analytics, Contact Form, Google Fonts. 


The User can manage his preferences regarding cookies through the features present in common browsers that allow to delete/remove cookies (all or some) or to change the settings of the browser itself in order to block the sending of cookies or to limit them to specific sites (as opposed to others). 

The user can also refuse the collection of their data through Google Analytics through their browser settings and/or by downloading and installing the following plug-in made available by Google:
