Adunanza Digitale (Digital Gathering) involves a series of events articulated across a number of different cities, centred around the question of digital rights and participation. These events are not aimed only at enthusiasts and hackers, but aim to increase awareness about digital rights and the tools available to freely exert them. Adunanza
Digitale starts on the 4th of November in Caserta, in the South of Italy, with events already planned in Salerno, Naples, Rome, Pescara, Trieste and Genoa over the following weeks. The initiative is open to any association or group that wishes to participate in the adunanza.
The subjects under discussion include the informed use of the internet, the defence of individual privacy, the disclosure of Trusted Computing and the promotion and diffusion of free software and the culture of participation that is synonymous with this movement. The entire programme of Adunanza will be made available online in streaming, with screencasts and videocasts which will be archived and can be viewed at any time.
Real-time interaction using a chat system will be provided during individual events in order to facilitate debate. The aim is to make the content of the Adunanza available to as wide an audience as possible, providing new ideas and a spur to organising further gatherings in new places.
