Hi,
i'm happy to annunce that today the Italian Ministry of ICT has published
the working draft of the Italian government WG about the upgrade of Italian
law accessibility requirements.

http://www.innovazionepa.gov.it/lazione-del-ministro/wcag-20/nuovi-requisiti
-e-punti-di-controllo-per-l'accessibilita.aspx

with the activities of promotion of full-wcag 2.0 endorsment without
"guidelines/success criteria" modification, we are arrived to define the
requirements at level AA for WCAG 2.0 using this strategy:
- guidelines are the "law" requirements
- evalutation criteria are the "checklist" for the "law requirements"
- techniques (that are not stable) are a reference for the respect of
guidelines and success criteria

Now there are 30 days of public consultation, and then ministry should make
them active and required for the public administration in Italy.
