expiration) are used with the aim to identify – during this limited period of time – the visitor’s computer; this operation is
performed through an alpha-numeric code that makes the user anonymous but recognizable, which is generated at the
first session of access, in order to propose again the result of the choices made by the user. Their deactivation affects
the use of services accessible by login. The public part of the site can be utilized in normal conditions.

also allow the visitor to monitor the system and to improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these

and to improve his/her browsing experience. This site does not utilize cookies of this type.
