Hi folks, 

IWA Italy - precisely its educational section
http://educational.iwa-italy.org - has started the "Accessibility Italy
Tour", a series of one day seminaries about Web Accessibility and WCAG 1.0
overview.

The first seminary in Rome went sold out, and we do hope to get the same
result in other cities, all over Italy; other seminaries are planned in
Naples (I'll be the speaker), Genova, Venice (Roberto Scano will be the
speaker), Pescara (I'll be there too) and Brescia.

And it is only the first step; in 2005 we are going to organize courses and
more seminaries in Italy to push the accessibility culture, against the
"business-only" theory that seems to attract too many developers and
enterprises; we all know that money and business move the world, but we do
believe that a correct way to create business with accessibility exists and
that it's not only based on accessibility logos. 

Moreover, in a few weeks the new Stanca Law on web accessibility will be
operative and fully working, so this is the best moment to speak about web
accessibility and web standards in the right way.

My best regards,

Roberto Castaldo
