The Fondazione Edoardo Garrone website uses cookies.

Cookies are small text files that the websites the user visits send to the computer (usually the browser); they are stored in the user's computer and sent to the websites at each subsequent visit. When browsing a website, users may receive cookies from other websites or web servers (so-called "third party" cookies). This happens because the visited website may contain items such as images, maps, sound files, links to individual web pages on different domains that are located on servers other than the one where the page being visited is stored.
Each browser has its own procedures for handling cookies; you need to access their settings sections to set up your preferences.
If you change the settings, this will only affect that particular browser and that particular device, so if you want to bring your other devices in line with those settings, you need to set your preferences on every browser.
The Fondazione Edoardo Garrone website contains a header banner with a short notice on how cookies are handled on the website. By agreeing or closing the header banner, you consent to the installation of both technical cookies and third-party profiling/social cookies on your device.
