Data Protection
This site neither collect personal information nor tracks user’s identity unbeknownst to him. Cookies and Google’s Analytics services are used only for statistics purposes and, in any case, don’t identify the actual identity of a person. A plain wrong Italian enforcement of the EU “cookie” directive makes mandatory to obtain a prior consent to allow the use of Google Analytics, even if – as in this case – the personal identity of a user is unknown by me and Google only “might” be able to exploit the anonymous information collected through this website. So, in case you want to know if Google is able to identify you by means of this website’s access, please send me your identity together with your IP and I will forward your request to Google… or you might better do it on your own, without telling ME who you are.

Questions and data protection-related issues can be reported at my professional addresses.

Comments are welcomed but abusive words, libel and in general offensive behaviour are not tolerated. This is why I reserve for myself the right of approve or remove any comment at my sole will. In case of abuse, all the available information will be reported to the public authorities.

Press law (L. 47/1948 – L. 62/01)
Although I’m a journalist (giornalista-pubblicista, in Italian) this site is not intended to provide professional activities and is not updated on a regular basis. This statement might seems odd for non-italians, but is mandatory to avoid to be jailed for “clandestine press activity”. And, yes, just in case you ask: Italy is supposed to be a democratic country.
