Service of a court brief by means of a certified email (PEC)

Service of a court brief by means of a certified email (PEC) according to applicable technical rules set out under the law has the same effect of a service through the postal service.  The service is considered to have been made at the time of generation of the delivery receipt by the administrator of the certified email of the recipient independently from the “opening” of the email by the same recipient.
