What does privacy mean?

There are these two young fish swimming along, and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, “Morning, boys, how’s the water?” And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, “What the hell is water?»


David Foster Wallace

It often happens that we don’t realize the most self-evident, ever-present and significant realities.

Privacy is one of them.

Beside the literary provocation, trying to define it in an unequivocal way is impossible, since its own scope is designed again and again by the technological progress and the mankind socio-cultural evolution.

We believe that privacy is first and foremost a value embedded in the heart of the human being.
As reminded us, not too long ago, one of the biggest expert in the field: Professor Giovanni Buttarelli

And this is what, assisting our Clients, we want to pass to them.

It’s only human to recognize a personal point, indispensable, within which our private sphere can really be private. It is also human to seek refuge in this private point, protecting it from attacks or tampering to which every centimetres of our private life is exposed, exercising a direct control on the information concerning us.

As time goes by (a time, we know, characterized by an acceleration never experienced before); more is revealed the incredible, fascinating and at the same time terrible power of technologies; more the essential value of privacy is sensed. .

Yes, essential: for the freedom of the individual; or rather, for the freedomS (to circulate, to choose, to vote, to buy, to…) of any of us, and everyone.


Here comes into play the law in which we are specialized: the protection of personal data.

Orlandi&Partners StudioLegale realizes all this together with its Clients.
