The Digital Transformation of Italy’s Public Sector

Government Cannot Be Left Behind!


  • Daniela Battisti Ministro per L'Innovazion Tecnologica e la Digitalizzazione, Dipartimento per la Trasformazione Digitale

Throughout the years, different governments introduced different types of governance but, unfortunately, the situation has not improved. Most recently, though, there have been signs of change. The country is experiencing a new awareness; the new challenges that the digital transition is generating are becoming a policy priority. Continuity and consistency in the country’s digital strategy are reasons to believe that the digital transformation of the public sector may be on the right track at last.
