Arbitration is a tool for the resolution of civil law and commercial disputes, as provided for by the Italian Code of Civil Procedure (Art. 806 and following), and operates as an alternative to the ordinary courts. The parties entrust the settlement of their dispute to either a Single Arbitrator or an Arbitration Panel, that is to say, to impartial and independent third parties with technical expertise, who are experts in the matter.
