Hi I don't speak Italian but I think you are asking "what is the purpose of this guide?". We made these as a project for university because I wanted to resolder a wire in this controller that came undone. For good measure we made a guide for each individual part although the real purpose of these guides was for the full disassembly and re soldering.
