Yes. It's an Alfa.
The fronts are 'normal'. I simply pushed the fluid back into the master and slipped in the new pads.
The rears presented a problem. I couldn't get the pistons to push back. So, I milled 60 thousandths off each pad and then they fit. But, I had to remove the caliper and take the two halves apart.
Now that I have the manual on CD, it says (from memory) to remove the parking brake cable and unwind the parking brake self-adjuster. Then swap pads while the caliper is still attached.
