Post Scriptum: a note about the Street Photography pictures released here. Street Photography is about freezing slices of real life through candid shots. But this doesn’t mean being free to do whatever we want with somebody else’s face. To put it short: my Street Photography pictures (should they be of some interest) are not meant to be used by anybody, no matter the goal.

I’m acutely aware that this statement sounds dull when the Internet is involved. But I still trust people – after all there are people behind a computer, aren’t they? – to use a reasonable amount of common sense.


Dear anonymous visitor, you may enjoy this web site’s contents with all the ease of not being tracked.

I do not know your identity and will do nothing to figure out who you are.

This explains why I do not ask for your consent: it is not possible to abide by the law if one’s counterpart is unknown.

I do not have social network’s ‘share buttons’, comments are disabled, as are user registration features.

I only use those cookies and pieces of code that make Google Analytics work and that will eventually be dismissed as soon as I am sure that Matomo (also installed) works as advertised.

If you check this website with some online tool you may find two cookies ‘_utmz’ and ‘_utma’. The former tracks your sessions, the latter your location. You may find more information here. They are needed by Google Analytics. Google does not send me any personal information about you. Still, it can autonomously collect it by matching with other information only Google is privy to. If so, it is solely Google’s responsibility to provide you with correct information. Give them your IP number and ask what they do know about you also in relation to this website.

If you are concerned about your personal privacy, you should avoid tracking-enabled devices, use privacy-friendly browsers and extensions, Tor networks and VPN to access the Internet.
Protecting your personal information is your responsibility.

Questions and privacy-related issues can be reported trough this page.

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.
