What are cookies

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send to his/her terminal – computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc. – where they are stored in order to be retransmitted to the same sites the next time the same user visits. By browsing this site, you may only receive cookies sent directly from our site. In this regard, and for the purposes of this measure, we therefore identify two macro-categories: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies. With regard to cookies we inform the user that in this site are used exclusively technical cookies so-called “analytics” to statistically analyze visits to the site and technical cookies of navigation or session. They have only statistical purposes and collect information in aggregate form and in particular the analytics cookies used in this site are those of Google, based on the javascript ga.js. Browsing or session cookies, on the other hand, allow the user an easier navigation. No personal user data is acquired by the site in this regard.

No use is made of cookies for the transmission of personal information.


The site uses Google Analytics to collect information about users’ use of its website. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information through cookies, stored on users’ computers. The information generated related to our website is used to make reports about website usage. Google will store and use this information. Google’s privacy policy is available at:

These cookies allow our website to store information that changes the behavior or appearance of the website, such as your preferred language or the geographic area in which you are located.

The loss of information stored in a preference cookie may make your experience on the website less functional but should not affect its operation.

Most Google users have a preference cookie called “NID” in their browsers. The browser sends this cookie with requests to Google sites. The NID cookie contains a unique ID that is used by Google to store your preferences and other information, such as your preferred language (e.g., Italian), the number of search results you want to be shown per page (e.g., 10 or 20), and your preference for activating Google’s SafeSearch filter.

The use of such cookies requires the express and informed consent of the user (ex art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code). The user, by accessing the Home Page of the Site, viewing the information banner relating to cookies present therein and viewing the information provided, therefore provides his/her specific consent to the use of cookies. It is also considered valid consent on the part of the user to have configured their Internet Browser (e.g. Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) to accept the use of cookies (ex art. 122, paragraph 2, of the Code).
We use cookies, such as NID and SID cookies, to help personalize ads in Google properties, such as Google Search.
The main cookie for advertising on third-party sites is called “id” or “IDE” and is stored in browsers under the domain.

Sometimes an advertising cookie may be set on the domain of the site you are visiting. In the case of the DoubleClick product, a “__gads” cookie may be set on the site’s domain. Unlike cookies set on Google domains, this cookie cannot be read by Google when you visit other sites. It allows, for example, measuring interactions with ads on the domain.
Conversion cookies are not used by Google for personalized ad targeting and are kept for a limited period of time. The “Conversion” cookie is intended for this purpose and is generally set in the domain. DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.

Session status
The website collects information about how users interact with it. This information may relate to the pages users visit most often and any error messages they receive from certain pages. We use these “session state cookies” to improve our services and our users’ browsing experience. Blocking or deleting these cookies will not make the website unusable.

These cookies may also be used to measure the effectiveness of PPC (Pay Per Click) and affiliate advertising.

The use of so-called Session Cookies (which are not stored persistently on the user’s computer and vanish when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to enable the safe and efficient exploration of the site. The so-called Session Cookies used in this site avoid the use of other computer techniques potentially prejudicial to the privacy of users’ browsing and do not allow the acquisition of personal identification data of the user.

In case you want to block cookies please note that this may have a negative impact on the usability of some websites. Most browsers allow you to reject/accept cookies.
