Italy's Ministry of Economic Development (MISE) has announced that over 1,000 localities have signed up to its 'Piazza Wifi Italia' initiative just a week after it was launched. The project is designed to provide free Wi-Fi access to digital divide areas throughout the country, with a particular focus on localities with less than 2,000 inhabitants. In a statement, MISE said the village of Gamberale in the Chieti province was the 1,000th locality to join the project, for which the ministry has allocated some EUR 45 million.
