change your browser's settings
to fit the layout of this website

The layout of this website has been designed keeping in mind the resolution of the average visitor's monitor, which according to the latest survey is more often set at 1024 × 768 pixels, i.e. the same size of this pop up window.

If your own monitor is set to a different resolution, the pictures, the icons and whatever the page contains may likely be seen wrongly aligned with the blocks of text, and some titles may be off-centered.

What might appear a sloppy layout (but really isn't!) would certainly affect the pleasure of browsing through these pages. This can be avoided in two ways.
● set your monitor resolution at 1024 × 768 reaching the relevant window as follows:

Windows XP: key + D → right-click anywhere on the desktop → Properties → Settings
Windows Vista:  → Control Panel → Appearance and Personalization → Personalization → Display Settings
Windows 7: key + D → right-click anywhere on the desktop → Properties → Screen Resolution

● more easily, you can change the settings of your browser following these instructions.


Simply scale down the size of the text by one step, e.g. from standard to small; the command for doing so may change form browser to browser, but in almost all cases it can be found among the menus of the bar in the upper frame of the window (for example, View → Text size or View → Zoom).
If you are using Microsoft Explorer ver. 7.0 you can also easily set a zoom rate smaller than 100% (e.g. 75% or so) by operating the small pull-down menu in the lower right corner of the window (see detail below). This will affect also the size of the pictures, not only the font of the text.

 IF YOUR MONITOR'S RESOLUTION IS 1024 × 576 (or similar) 

If you are using a notebook, your resolution may likely be a width of 1024 pixels, but the monitor's height may be slightly less than 756 (for instance 576, or 600, ecc.). In this case the website is already optimized for being visited with your device, although in the window a slightly lower number of lines will be seen, compared to a standard monitor (this does not considerably affect the quality of the visualization).


Resize (shrink) the window of your browser with a click of the mouse, making its width close enough to 1024 pixels.
Most of you know how to carry out this simple operation, but those who are less acquainted with a PC can follow these tips.

 how to shrink the window's width  ←

  • 1 - Read well the following lines, either memorizing them or writing them down.

  • 2 - Make sure that your browser's main window is NOT maximized, i.e. it does not fill the monitor completely. If it does, as shown in the sample picture on the right, click on the second square icon located in the upper right corner, i.e. the one featuring two tiny rectangles (its look may slightly vary, according to the browser and to the Windows version you are using, as shown in the detail below).

  • maximized window
    The window will shrink in some degree, and appear similar to the one in the picture on the right.

    3 - Run the mouse cursor on the bottom right corner of the window (see enlarged detail below) , left-click and drag as you keep pressed.
    Resize the window horizontally, as close as possible to 1024 pixels, i.e. as wide as this window. Instead there is no need to resize it vertically, so you may wish to leave it as high as your monitor allows it to be.

    after resizing it, your window should look more or less like this

    Another way of obtaining the same result leaving the window maximized is to open a side bar (i.e. such as Microsoft Explorer's list of bookmarks) and resize it by dragging its right edge, so that the width of the active window shrinks to approximately 1024 pixels.

    Be sure to memorize these procedures before you...
