Thirty Years of Web
On April 30, 1986, Italy discovered the Internet. The signal transmitted from the Pisa University Centre for Electronic Calculations (CNUCE) to the Roaring Creek Station in Pennsylvania, connected it for the first time to the Arpanet, the US network connecting universities, research centres and military agencies. Italy was the fourth connected European country after Norway, the UK and West Germany.
Today, TV Programme Geo & Geo, hosted by Sveva Sagramola and nature photographer Emanuele Biggi, will also report on the Italian Internet Day with Alfonso Molina, Scientific Director of the Fondazione Mondo Digitale.
Alfonso Molina will address the potential of the Internet to improve people’s lives and the work of the Fondazione Mondo Digitale to promote digital literacy amongst categories at risk of exclusion like elders and foreigners.
