Confidentiality
15.1
Is arbitration seated in your jurisdiction confidential? Is a duty of confidentiality found in the arbitration legislation?
 
Italy
There is no duty of confidentiality in the arbitration legislation and the prevailing view is that arbitration is not per se confidential. However, arbitral rules and professional conduct regulations provide strict confidentiality obligations. As a result, in practice, arbitrations seated in Italy are indeed confidential.

15.2
Are there any exceptions to confidentiality?
 
Italy
The disclosure of information concerning arbitration proceedings is possible:

  • if requested by the law; or
  • with the consent of all parties involved (ie, the parties and the arbitrators).
