<title>Volunteers organise ‘Public Money? Public code!’ tour in Italy</title>
<h1 id="volunteers-organise-public-money-public-code-tour-in-italy">Volunteers organise ‘Public Money? Public code!’ tour in Italy</h1>
Code paid by the people should be available to the people!
Volunteers will present the ‘Public Money? Public Code!’ campaign
in Trento, Bologna, and Caltanissetta. If you live in Italy, now you
have a perfect chance to learn more about the initiative and
support it.
We want legislation requiring that publicly financed software
developed for the public sector be made publicly available under a
Free Software licence. If it is public money, it should be public
code as well. More than <a href="">30.000
people and 200 organisations</a> adopt this position. Public
administrations that use Free Software do not have to reinvent the
wheel in programming similar applications, so they can share costs
and save taxpayers’ money. The use of Free Software serves the
public and promotes innovation too, as users can utilise the code
found in the public digital infrastructure. The FSFE explains the
benefits of Free Software and shares best practices in the
dedicated ‘Public Money? Public Code!’ <a href="">brochure</a>
for public administrations. Volunteers translated the brochure into
<a href="­">Italian</a>.

organised by volunteers, we encourage you to directly get the news
from them by subscribing to the mailing lists and chat rooms of
