CNR was involved in the Global Internet governance matters at international level since the ARPAnet times. Now, the IIT institute is the promoter, within CNR, of a new multi-disciplinary research project on Internet governance to study questions that are coming from the evolving needs of the global Internet and are connected to technical standardization, to resource allocation and assignment, to legal and regulatory matters, to public policy and societal issues, to technologies, practices and to the evolving needs of the global Internet. While we are coming from a technological background, we recognize that it is important to work with all stakeholders from all sectors to achieve the fullest benefits of the Internet for all participants in the global network.
A first attempt to form an institutional multi- stakeholder dialog was the Consultation group of Civil Society on the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), set up by Minister Lucio Stanca in 2004.

Seventh Annual Internet Governance Forum Meeting was held in Baku, Azerbaijan from 6-9 November 2012. The main theme of the 2012 IGF annual meeting was “Internet Governance for Sustainable Human, Economic and Social Development”.
We organized the first IGF Italy in October 2008, and the second one in October 2009. Before these two meetings, we organized other national meetings about Internet Governance, since 2006, without using the IGF label. The main goals we tried to reach were:
- an impact on the public policy discussions and on national legislation and regulatory process.
Until now we reached a tangible sensitization of all stakeholders involved in IGF process, including government representatives. There is certainly space for further improvements, but the results just reached are appreciable compared with the previous period.
- a stronger relationship and exchange among our national relevant stakeholders.
In the events we just organized we involved different stakeholders in a debate/confrontation. The results is a remarkable development of Internet Governance national debate.
