Italia.it: legal repercussions in terms of accessibility
Italia.it and the Stanca Law in terms of accessibility: here is a clear and detailed analysis by Lorenzo Spallino (in Italian).

In order to better understand what the legal ramifications are of the inaccessibility of the portal, this article offers a contribution in methodology, helpful also to understand how Italian legislation actually does (or doesn’t) work in terms of acessibility of information technologies.
