What are "Cookies"
Cookies are small text files that the websites visited by users send to their terminals (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites at each subsequent visit through the same terminal.
It is the most common type and its duration is limited: it is activated when the user arrives on a website and is deleted when the user leaves the site. Its purpose is to recognize the user who navigates between one page and another of the site, so that the system knows that it is always the same person. These cookies do not cause any problems to the user's privacy, as they are deleted as soon as he leaves the site closes the browser window; the user's consent is not required for their use.
It is a cookie that is deleted from the device used by the user only after a certain period of time, which can last for years. As long as it is active, it is recognized by the system so it can be understood that the navigator has returned to the previously visited site. Consequently, it is possible to personalize the web page, for example with a welcome message, or by displaying advertisements that recall the same products displayed previously, to entice the user to purchase.
Original or first-party cookies, which are cookies sent to the browser directly from the site you are visiting. They can be both session and persistent and are managed directly by the website manager.
Third party cookies
They are generated and managed by subjects other than the manager of the website on which the user is browsing (usually there is a contract between the owner of the website and the third party) They can be marketing or profiling and in any case require the consent from part of the navigator Each site can allow the transmission of "third party" cookies, ie those generated by websites other than the one the user is visiting (through objects present in it such as banners, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains.

They have the purpose of memorizing the navigation made by the user on the various websites. In this way it is possible to determine a user's profile, his tastes and habits in order to offer him advertisements in line with his preferences and always require consent.

The legal bases
What the GDPR says
Recital 32 of the GDPR provides that: consent should be expressed through an unequivocal positive act with which the interested party expresses the free, specific, informed and unequivocal intention to accept the processing of personal data concerning him, for example by means of a declaration written, including by electronic means, or oral. Therefore, before the data processing begins, the user must provide consent that is unequivocal, freely given, voluntary, specific and informed. Consent can be given in many ways, given that the Cookie Law does not take a position on it, but it must be a certain consequence of a voluntary choice. This must be active behavior, as clarified by the ruling of the European Court of Justice (case C-673/17). The behavior put in place by the user, therefore, cannot consist in merely scrolling the page or clicking on a link that leads to another page, but must unequivocally be aimed at accepting cookies. The user must click an Accept or Reject button.
