I'm not sure if I completely understand what you are doing, but one thing I've discovered is that the "Save for Web" will not convert the image to sRGB.  The way I handle that (for images going to the web only), is to convert it to sRGB right after I flatten all the layers.  Once I've done that, THEN I use the "Save for Web".  I've never noticed any change in colour though when I've converted, but that just could be that my eyes are getting a little "older" (followed quickly by the rest of me   ).

I hope that helps some, but there are likely others better qualified to answer this.

Good morning,

I am knocked out concerning the management of the colours. I have outlined the monitor with Adobe gamma and have inserted the new profile (Dario) in the management colours of the card video. I have inserted in the software of the Scanner (Minolta Dimage IV) like “Output colour space” "Adobe RGB" and like "Monitor ICC Profile" the Dario profile that I have created with Adobe Range. As space of job in Photoshop I have chosen Adobe RGB 1998. They dull with the clone tool the image magnified to 200% and I try to get it the most faithful to originals using the Regulations: Levels and Tonality saturation in order to remove possible dominant. Does it seems all right for you so far?
Concerning instead the images to be published on my website, using "Save for web" I see a not negligible change in the colours regarding the original image. Believed to the fact that browser "the law" reads the images sRGB, except "colored" of Adobe RGB 1998. If it can be obviated to this problem, Do I have to repeat workflow setting the monitor, Photoshop and scanner with sRGB? With which results?

I am not altogether sure what you are trying to acheive here.  Sorry I do not mean to be rude but your English is very confusing.  I belive what you are confused with is your color managment.  There are many good guides on the internet including this site.  You may be better investing in a monitor profile device as I found Adobe Gamma quite poor (although better than nothing)

You seem to be using Adobe RBG as your color space.  This is probably the best general colorspace and is a good one to use if you are printing to inkjet.  

Concerning your web images, normally when you have completed all your adjustments on your master image you will save a master copy in Adobe RGB and then convert to SRGB and resize for the web (72dpi is fine).  You will notice a color shift at this point due to the difference in color gamuts.  You either live with this and put a message on our site or your other option is to bring up your Adobe RGB file along side it and adjust as best you can (or use softproof earlier on).

I hope this helps and that I have understood your question correctlty.
