In Summer 2012, P&I -the digital literacy program of Emilia-Romagna region- successfully completed the first year of its new phase and had to deal with the consequences of the major earthquake which hit the areas near Modena, Ferrara and Bologna in May 2012
Pane&Internet -P&I- (Bread&Internet) is a digital literacy programme carried out by the regional government of Emilia-Romagna in Italy. Born four years ago, it is currently the main e-inclusion project of PITER, the Telematics Plan of Emilia-Romagna.
P&I ran a pilot phase in 2009-2010 to test the training courses (3,000 people were trained) and the organisational and promotional approach for subsequent upscaling. In 2011-13, P&I is being deployed on a larger scale with a budget of 1.6 M€. The current aims are to train another 11,000 people through 630 digital literacy courses in the nine provinces of the region and start bottom-up sustainable solutions to continue the fight against digital exclusion into the future.
In Summer 2012, P&I successfully completed the first year of this new phase and had to deal with the consequences of the major earthquake which hit the areas near Modena, Ferrara and Bologna in May 2012.
