This site makes use of cookies and similar technologies. Cookies allow us to store information about visitors’ preferences, to check that the site is working properly and to improve its functionality by customising the content of the pages according to the type of browser used, or to simplify navigation by automating procedures (e.g. login, site language) and to analyse how visitors use the site.

This site makes use of the following categories of cookies:

Technical cookies

Cookies in this category include both persistent cookies and session cookies. They make it possible to distinguish between logged in Users, avoiding service being provided to the wrong User, and they are therefore a consequence of an express request made by the User; moreover, they function for the security of the site and of the Users themselves. In the absence of these cookies, the site or certain portions of it may not function properly. Cookies in this category are always sent from our domain and no consent is required.

Analytical cookies

Cookies in this category are used to collect information about the correct use of the site and User behaviour for statistical analysis, to improve the site and make it easier to use. This type of cookie collects information in an anonymous form about Users’ activity on the site, how they reached it, and the pages they visited. Cookies in this category are sent from the site itself or from third party domains.

Third Party Cookies

This site also acts as an intermediary for third party cookies, which are used to enable us to provide additional services and functionality to our visitors and to improve the use of the site, such as social buttons.
