Open Source Governance event in Rome next week.

I will join a panel about Open Source strategic issues in Rome on october 28th, aiming at bringing back to my home country some significant experiences and lessons learned in many years of Free Software and Open Source Software (FOSS) activity in France.

I do believe that Italy has an economic structure that could really benefit from a vigorous adoption of FOSS, as it is in this very moment happening in other countries that are not so far, like France and Spain.

Yet, the public sector has an essential role to play in converting this high potential into a concrete reality, and I will be happy to learn whether things are finally changing back home.
