If you have some questions about italian law
My activity in the Group of Work of the University of Brescia (Italy)
Who is who
Last successful work
Municipality of Polcenigo (PN) - Regulator of flow
This regulator of flow is constituted by a system of closable openings, regulated by floating balls.
When the level of water in the backside rises, floating balls close the holes progressively, so that the flow that goes trough the openings is about constant.
The system is made with stainless steel and trimmed with larch.

What is Social Responsibility?
Sara Sanviti's office approaches and practises the seven principles of social responsibility, that are: accountability, transparency, ethical behaviour, respect for stakeholder interests, respect for the rule of law, respect for international norms of behaviour, respect for human rights. These principles are contained in the Guidance on social responsibility (ISO 26000).
The accountability imposes an obligation to be answerable to legal authorities with the respect to laws and regulations; it also encompasses accepting responsibility wher wrongdoing has occurred, taking the appropriate measures to remedy the wrongdoing and taking action to prevent it from being repeated; an organization should account for the results of its decisions and activities;
the transparency consists to disclose in a clear, accurate and complete manner to a reasonable and sufficient degree, the policies, decisions and activities for which an organization is responsible; the information should be readly available, directly accessible and understandable to those who have been, or may be affected in significant ways by the organization.
the ethical behaviour is based on essential principles of honesty, equity and integrity, that imply a concern for people, animals and the environment; these ethics also imply a commitment to address stakeholders' interests; an organization should actively promote ethical conduct by preventing or resolving conflicts of interest, by establishing mechanisms to facilitate the reporting of unethical behaviour without fear or reprisal and by recognizing and addressing situations where local laws and regulations either do not exist; finally, also respecting the welfare of animals;
the respect for stakeholder interests is already a principle of the deontolgical code of this office, in the relationship with customers; but an organization should respect, consider and respond to the interests of its all stakeholders;
the respect for the rule of law is mandatory: so, an organization should accept the supremacy of law and, in particular, to the idea that no individual or organization stands above the law; the rule or law contrasts with the arbitrary exercise of power;
the respect for international norms of behaviour means that an organization should adhere to the principle of respect for the rule of international norms when local law or its implementation does not provide for minimum environmental or social safeguards;
the respect for human rights is an universal principle, indivisibly applicable in all countries, cultures and situations: so an organization should adhere to the international norms of behaviour, in situations where the law or its implementation does not provide for adequate protection of human rights.
«Social responsibility» is different from «Quality management» (ISO 9000), because social responsibility is based on objective criteria, while quality management is based on subjective criteria (the customer satisfaction).
This office has its seat in Italy, where social injustice makes difficult the implementation of principles of social responsibility: so, we accept every criticism or indication, in order to make it always better.
