The WiFi°Italia°It project aims at allowing citizens and tourists, both Italian and foreign, to connect in an easy way to a free of charge and widespread WiFi network throughout the Country.
This is possible through the use of an APP for mobile devices that allows each user to access transparently and promptly to the federated WiFi networks and to enjoy connectivity as well as the contents and services of the Tourism ecosystem that will be made available.
To do this, along with Mibact and Agid, MiSE started a process that will allow to:
- Join all public and private networks to have a unique and simple Wi-Fi access system available to citizens and tourists
- Grow the Wi-Fi access network, particularly in the areas of tourism and culture.
- Take advantage of the access to the network to enrich the tourism ecosystem (statistical data analysis, appropriately anonymous, to study user behaviors and preferences and consequently improve services)
The Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Culture and the Agency for Digital Italy signed a Memorandum of Understanding “for the deployment of intelligent platforms for tourists on Italian territory. The so called “WiFi°Italia°It project.
The MoU promotes, activates and develops innovation processes aimed at creating a digital ecosystem of tourism capable of facilitating the access of citizens and tourists to the artistic, natural and cultural heritage distributed throughout the national territory. On the other hand, the protocol will create a fertile environment for the private sector in which to develop value-added applications and services.
The future APP releases will give the possibility to register using SPID and to access also through laptops or pads. Furthermore, we want this App to become an easy platform able to give all citizens and tourists both connectivity and value added services.
