Social media

The Presidency of the Council of Ministers uses social media for institutional purposes, in order to be more transparent and raise awareness about its activities: it provides information and communications, listens to users and publishes institutional content.

Published content includes photographs, institutional videos, press releases, useful information and news relating to the activities of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, as well as opportunities to involve and engage citizens.

The Presidency may use its social media channels to share and relaunch content and messages published by other users, which are of interest to and useful for the public.

The Presidency of the Council of Ministers monitors its social media channels systematically and on a continuous basis.

The Presidency of the Council of Ministers undertakes to manage areas dedicated to communication and dialogue within its social media profiles, kindly asking users to follow a number of simple rules:

  • All opinions should be expressed in a fair, measured and respectful way.
  • Users are individually responsible for the content they publish and for the opinions they express on social media. Insults, vulgarity, offensive language, threats and, in general, violent or defamatory behaviour will in any case not be tolerated.
  • Published content must always respect people’s privacy. References to facts or details that are not of public relevance and that may invade other people’s privacy must be avoided.
  • The matters discussed must relate to the activities of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers: under no circumstances may social media profiles be used for non-institutional purposes.
  • All discussions are linked to a specific topic: all participants are asked to respect said topics, without generically and indiscriminately broadening the discussion.
  • Under no circumstances will advertising, spam or the promotion of private interests or illegal activities be tolerated.
  • It is not permitted to publish content in violation of copyright and nor may registered trademarks be used without authorisation.

In any case, if permitted by social media, staff shall remove any posts, comments or audio/video materials that:

  • include inappropriate language and/or have a threatening, violent, vulgar or disrespectful tone;
  • include unlawful content or content that incites illegal activities;
  • have offensive, misleading or alarmist content or content that infringes third party rights;
  • disclose personal data and information or that may damage the reputation of others;
  • include obscene, pornographic or child abuse content, or content that may offend users;
  • include content that discriminates based on gender, race, ethnic group, language, religious beliefs, political opinions, sexual orientation, age or personal and social conditions;
  • promote or support illegal activities, that infringe copyright or that misuse registered trademarks.

The Presidency of the Council of Ministers reserves the right to ban or block anyone who repeatedly breaches these conditions or those stated in the policies of the relative services (following an initial warning, where possible), in order to prevent them from taking further action. The Presidency of the Council of Ministers also reserves the right to report such users to those in charge of the relative platforms and to police forces, where appropriate.
