The website uses cookies and similar technologies to ensure the proper functioning of the procedures and improve the experience of using online applications. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how they are used and how to manage them.


Cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at the next visit by the same user.

Types of cookies

Based on their characteristics and use, cookies can be divided into different categories:

Strictly necessary cookies
These are cookies that are essential for managing login and access to the site’s reserved functions, typically for web editors to update pages. The duration of these cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible from login. The public part of the sites, on the other hand, remains normally usable.

Technical cookies (for analysis and performance)
These are cookies used to collect and analyze traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow for example to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability.

Profiling cookies
These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) the user’s preferences and improve their browsing experience.


Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user. These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. Browsing through the pages of the site, you can interact with sites managed by third parties that can create or modify persistent and profiling cookies. The temporal conservation of each individual cookie is visible in the “cookie list” table.
