Checcacci Partners was established early 2019 by Giorgio Checcacci, after more than 30 years of professional experience, mainly at Porta, Checcacci & Associati (PCA), of which he was a cofounder in 1991.

The new firm relies on a team of experts with long experience and acts in network with Provvisionato & Co. in Bologna.


A patent is the right granted to a patent holder, for a limited period, to exclude others from commercially exploiting his invention without his authorisation. It is the best way of protecting technological innovation.


Design protection covers the ornamental or aesthetic appearance of a product, a part of a product or an ornament. The technical function of a product is not included in the protection, it can instead be protected by means of a patent.

An industrial design may consist of three-dimensional features, such as the shape of an article, or two dimensional features, such as patterns, lines or colors.


A trademark is a sign capable of distinguishing the goods or services of one enterprise from those of other enterprises.  This sign may encompass one or more words or letters or numbers, a shape, or a combination thereof. It is also possible, in some cases, to register colors, slogans and melodies as trademarks.
