All of the tools to segregate assets

Tools for the protection of assets means those Italian or foreign legal institutions (for example, trust fund, fiduciary custody, deed of real estate destination, family foundation), from which the segregation effects of the assets of a natural or a legal person are derived.

It is worth noting that there are no asset protection tools, but rather the protective effects which derive from the application of these existing legal institutions. In particular, the general rule is contained in art. 2740 of the Civil Code: "The debtor responds to the fulfillment of obligations with all of his present and future assets. The limitations of liability are not permitted except in cases established by law."

The tools for safeguarding assets, however, allow you to access the aforesaid limitations of responsibility, at least by limiting them to certain credit categories by the remedies of executive action.
