- Technical Cookies
- Targeting Cookies
- Third-Party Services Analysis Cookies
- Cookies to integrate products and functions of third party software
Let’s see them in detail:
Technical cookies: This type of cookie allows the proper operation of certain sections of the Website. They are of two categories, temporary (or session) and persistent (see above). These cookies are required to view the site and in relation to the technical services offered. They will always be used and sent, unless you do not change the settings in your browser (this may result in a poor service; moreover, one or more services may be unavailable).
Third-Party Services Analysis Cookies: These cookies are used to collect information about the Website by users (anonymously), such as page views, time spent on site, traffic sources, geographic origin, age, gender and interests for the purpose of marketing campaigns. These cookies are sent from third-party domains outside the Website.
Cookies to integrate products and functions of third party software: This type of cookie integrates features developed by third parties within the pages of the Website such as the icons and preferences expressed in social networks in order to share the contents of the Website, or for the use of third-party software services (such as software to generate maps and additional software that other services offer). These cookies are sent from third-party domains and partner sites that offer their functionality in the pages of the Website.
Targeting Cookies: These cookies are needed to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user within the pages of the Website.
This site, according to the current legislation, is not obliged to request consent for technical cookies, as they are required for the normal functioning of the Website. As to cookies created by the analysis service offered by Google Analytics (see below), they can be considered as technical cookies, for two reasons:
- they collect data in “aggregate” form, not attributable to individual users or persons that can be identified
- the IP address of the connecting device used (computer, smartphone or tablet) is “anonymized” (modified) and for this reason it becomes unrecognizable and the privacy level is increased (read more here below).
For all other types of cookies, users can express their consent with one or more of the following methods:
- Through specific configurations of the browser or programs used to navigate the pages of this Website
- By changing the settings in the use of third-party services
Both solutions might prevent you from using or viewing parts of this Website.

Information about Google Analytics cookies
These cookies are considered “Third-Party Cookies”. Google is responsible for them, as it supplies the service.
Google Analytics is a statistics service managed by Google which collects data on website visits and makes data available to the website owner in an anonymous and “aggregate” way, in the sense that you can not reconnect statistics data to individuals who have visited the Website. For further details about Google Analytic cookies please read the related section in this page.
Notice: the _gat cookie may have a structured name. For example, if instead of _gat you see gat_firstaccount, this means that more than one accounts are used to collect statistical data, and in this case the name of the account is identified with the suffix “_firstaccount” after “_gat”.
Information about Google Maps cookies
Our Website might show Google Maps in one or more pages. They generate cookies, the so-called “Third Party Cookies”, as Google – which supplies the service – is responsible for them. Google Maps is a service by Google which enables the creation of dynamic maps on websites, such as the typical map in the “Where we are” page. Although we have no control on cookies created by Google, it seems they include a mixture of information to measure the number of users on the Google Maps, and their behaviour.
About PREF and SID cookies, Google declares in this page this page (Privacy and terms) of its website in the “Advertising” section:
“Most Google users will have a preferences cookie called ‘PREF’ in their browsers. A browser sends this cookie with requests to Google’s sites. The PREF cookie may store your preferences and other information, in particular your preferred language (e.g. English), how many search results you wish to have shown per page (e.g. 10 or 20), and whether or not you wish to have Google’s SafeSearch filter turned on.”
About SID and HSID cookies Google declares, in the same page (Privacy and terms) of its site in the “Security” section:
Information about YouTube cookies
Our Website might use in one or more pages the YouTube (by Google) third party service to display one or more videos. When you view one page of our Website with one video (“embedded video”) YouTube creates some third party cookies. These cookies are used by YouTube to store user preferences when they view pages containing videos, or for other non specified purposes. YouTube does not disclose precise details about its cookies and how they are used. These cookies do not identify you personally, unless you are logged in Google, and in this case it is connected to your Google Account. If you do not want YouTube to collect information about your visit, you can individually or totally block these cookies, as indicated in the section “Policy of fhird party cookies”.

USE OF “GOOGLE ANALYTICS ONLINE ANALYSIS SOFTWARE AND ITS RELATED COOKIES
Use of IP addresses anonymized detection
In order to collect statistical data about user navigation and improve the communication of our Website and the services we offer, our Website uses the data analysis online software “Google Analytics”.
This service is supplied by the “Google Inc.” company, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA” (referred to as “Google” in this text). Google Analytics uses either temporary and persistent tracking cookies (which have various expiry dates, as described in this page) in order to recognize a user which has already visited the pages of our Website in the past. Data about the use of the web pages of our Website detected by such cookies are normally transmitted to a Google server in the United States (or other countries), where they are stored.
Data collected by the Google Analytics system concern, for instance, information relating to time spent on the Website, approximate geographic location, entrance and exit pages, origin of visitor traffic, and so on. Google will use this data to evaluate the use of the Website, draw reports on the activity of our Website and provide us with further services connected to the use of our Website and of the Internet.
Data collected through these cookies will be used in aggregate form. “In aggregate form” means that cookies and tracking systems are never associated to the individual person but to navigation, and therefore nobody will manage to associate your name to the web pages or websites that you visit.
Moreover, an important detail such as your IP address, is “anonymized” to raise the level of your protection, as explained here below.
In our Website the Google Analytics tracking code has been completed by the “gat._anonymizeIp();” code, to guarantee an anonymized detection of IP addresses (the so called IP masking).
Your IP address (the number assigned to your computer or device by your Internet Service Provider) is shortened and therefore anonymized – on our initiative – by Google within the member States of the European Union or in other States of the agreement on the European economic space. For this reason user profiles created by Google Analytics are “anonymized” and this makes it impossible to trace back the individual user. Only in some particular cases the whole IP address is transmitted to a Google server, and there it is shortened.
Your anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser within the Google Analytics system, is not added to other data stored by Google. A transmission of this data to third parties through Google can only be achieved by a statutory provision or as part of data processing for third parties. In no case will Google group your personal data with any other data collected.
Google adheres to the principles of personal data of the “US Safe Harbor” agreement and is registered in the “Safe Harbor” program of the Ministry of Commerce of the United States.
By using our Website you declare your consent to the processing of data collected by Google Analytics, and to the methods of data processing as well as to purpose described above.
At any time you can refuse and / or block cookies through the settings of your browser, although this may make it impossible to use certain features of the Website (see procedures in this page).
Another way to avoid detection of the data generated by the cookie about your use of our Site (including your IP address) is to download and install the “Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on”, an extension to your browser, which you can find by clicking on this link:
In the following page you can find the Terms of service of Google Analytics:

Websites and third party services
Our Website might contain links to other websites, which are based on their own cookie policies, which can be different from our own. We are not responsible for this, and invite you to gather full information in those sites.
Other cookies and unforseen circumstances
In a dynamic environment as the Internet is, it may not always be possible to control all cookies that are stored by third parties through this Website. For example, in some cases a given web page can contain embedded elements from other sites: text, documents, photos or videos, all material visible on our website but stored on third-party websites. In case you find a cookie on our website which is not shown in the following information, please let us know. Or, as an alternative, feel free to directly contact the third party (cookie owner) and ask anything you need to know on this cookie (purpose, duration and how they guarantee your privacy). In case you discover that in a given page a cookie for a certain functionality (such as viewing a Google Map or a YouTube video) is created, and in other pages – for the same function – it is not created, you may have encountered a momentary failure of our Website on that page. In this case, please inform us of this unexpected occurrence, and we will immediately check and resolve.
