Thank you for letting us all know of this initiative. Great news and
congratulations to all of those involved in this project for Italy.
The IRPC Charter Booklet is now in Spanish, with Portuguese on the way
and - hopefully - French too, alongside the German, Arabic, Farsi, and
Mandarin editions. It would be great to have an Italian edition to
accompany this launch of an Italian Declaration of Internet Rights and
support the work in this way.
Looking forward to hearing how things develop!
