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).

Abstract

After a long gestation, Italia.it, the Italian National Turism Portal is taking its first steps. Complaints shower from all sides claiming a violation of the conditions guaranteeing access to information technologies by people subject to disablities, as set down in the Italian law of January 4, 2004 and the descendent legislation. 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.
