Thursday 12 September 2019 | 10:06 CET | News
The new Italian government has set up a Technological Innovation and Digitilisation ministry as part of prime minister Giuseppe Conte’s drive to create a smart nation. “We have created a ministry dedicated to technological innovation and to digitalisation that will help companies as well as the public administration transform Italy into a genuine smart nation,” said Conte at a meeting with the President-elect of the European Commission, Ursula Von der Leyen, according to Corriere delle Comunicazioni.

The ministry will be headed by Paola Pisano, a member of the Five Star Movement (M5S) and former Councillor for Innovation in the City of Turin. “It is an honour for me to be able to contribute to our country, a territory rich in potential and skills to be developed," said Pisano in a Facebook post.
