Declaration of accessibility

In 2019, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the birth of the web, its creator, Tim Berners-Lee, said ‘The web is for everyone, and only all of us together have the power to improve it’.

The web is a tool of freedom and autonomy for people with disabilities: thanks to the internet, they can, for instance, do their shopping or access financial services without having to physically visit offices and shops. Finally, the web has become increasingly important in these months of isolation and social distancing due to the health emergency, as it allows access to educational (think of distance learning), informative and recreational content such as films, books, and news portals.

Therefore, in 2021, we started work on improving the accessibility of our site, enabling us to optimise the browsing experience for all users, including those with disabilities.

We have done our best to ensure the full usability of the contents of this website for people with (sensory and physical) disabilities, dyslexia, and the elderly.

This site considers the WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines for website development.

Validators were used to check compliance with accessibility guidelines and a working group of people with disabilities (sight, hearing, and reduced mobility in the upper limbs) was set up to advise the developers on improvements.

For technical reasons, it has not been possible to optimise the site in all its parts, but a number of measures have been taken, concerning navigation, links, and images.

The accessibility check was conducted by Yeah, a social cooperative specialising in services for accessibility and inclusion, which issued the accessibility statement shown here.
