What are the other forms of advertising for sales notices?
In addition to the publication on the public sales portal, the publication on specialized internet sites for the insertion of the notices of sale referred to in Ministerial Decree 31/10/2006 as required by paragraph 2 of art 490 cpc continues to be mandatory :
" In the event of expropriation of registered movable property, for a value exceeding 25,000 euros, and of immovable property, the same notice, together with a copy of the judge's order and the appraisal report drawn up pursuant to Article 173-bis of the provisions for the implementation of this code, is also posted on specific websites at least forty-five days before the deadline for the submission of offers or the date of the auction. "
The public sales portal automatically transmits the publication data to the websites referred to in paragraph 2 indicated in the order by the Judge, but does not transmit the attachments to be compulsorily published (Notice / order of sale, appraisal report) which will be transmitted directly from the person entitled to publish to the manager / s of the website / s arranged in the ordinance.
The Edicom Group has the following specialized websites for the insertion of sales notices authorized by the Ministry of Justice: www.asteannunci.it - www.asteavvisi.it - www.canaleaste.it - www.rivistaastegiudiziarie.it
Further forms of advertising, provided for by paragraph 3 of art. 490 of the Italian Civil Code, may be ordered by the Judge or at the request of the proceeding creditor or creditors who have intervened with title:

Local, multi-weekly or weekly news newspapers published by subjects registered in the Communications Operators Register (ROC) and having editorial characteristics similar to those of newspapers that guarantee the greatest circulation in the area concerned are equivalent to daily newspapers. In the notice, the indication of the debtor is omitted. "
For this reason, the professional in charge, in the usual manner, will have to send the publication request to the Edicom Group relating to the advertising obligations set forth in the ordinance pertaining to the same. (E.g. websites, management of print advertising, complementary and commercial advertising).
SIMPLIFICATION OF THE PERFORMANCE OF ADVERTISING OBLIGATIONS BY THE LEGITIMIZED SUBJECT FOR PUBLICATION (DELEGATED PROFESSIONAL, CURATOR, JUDICIAL LIQUIDATOR, ETC.)

The subject entitled to publication sends Edicom the request for publication accompanied by billing data and attachments (notice of sale and appraisal report, photos and plans of the lots for sale).
The sending methods are as follows:
through the electronic submission procedure on the www.asteannunci.it portal

by short hand delivery to the staff available at the local offices.
Edicom staff assist applicants in preparing the documentation, also for the purpose of complying with the legislation on privacy and confidentiality for the protection of the executives NB: the applicant is in any case required to check the documentation in order to verify the absence of data sensitive.

What are telematic sales?
Article 569 of the Civil Code , 3rd paragraph, provides that the Judge, after having ordered the forced sale of the property, "establishes, unless it is prejudicial to the interests of creditors or for the prompt execution of the procedure, that the payment of the deposit, the submission of offers, the conduct of the tender between the bidders and, in the cases provided for, the auction, as well as the payment of the price, are carried out electronically, in compliance with the regulatory provisions referred to in Article 161-ter of the provisions for the implementation of this code. "
The Ministerial Decree n. 32 of February 26, 2015 (Regulation containing the technical and operational rules for carrying out the sale of movable and immovable property using telematic methods) defines the procedures for carrying out the online tender.
By telematic sale, therefore, we mean the method of conducting a tender between multiple bidders through the use of a specific IT platform, made available by the manager, which allows the management and participation in the sale through the methods and specifications provided for by the Ministerial Decree 32/2015.
