Hi group,

last week, I spoke in a one-day seminary organized by IWA/HWG Italy about
the new italian law (Legge Stanca) on Web accessibility: "Stanca Law: from
theory to reality" http://educational.iwa-italy.org/evento.asp?id=18.

In this event we wanted to explain how the new law's actuation rules will
influence the italian Web, with particular focus on Public Administration
and Government Web Sites, and how this law should not be considered only as
an obligation to follow, but as an opportunity to start to improve and
optimize public utility Web sites.

In detail, here's the main topics I talked about:

- Complete analysis of the law's text
- Actuation rules of the law which will be released in april (I hope so)
- Web sites law's requirements whit examples and tecniques (WCAG and Section
508 references and links)
- Hardware and software law's requirements (Section 508 links)

The auditory gave me an impressive feedback, as all the people involved in
developing such rules have done a really good job; in few words, it could be
a concrete starting point for a better web.

My best regards,
