The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is once again at the cutting edge of Italian government initiatives to develop IT infrastructure. The Director of the Agenziaperl’ItaliaDigitale (Agency for a Digital Italy), Agostino Ragosa, has paid a visit to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs data processing centre, where he admired the development of the MFA Cloud project.

It provides online access to shared information services, with the added bonus of more effective and easier access, faster information searches, and energy savings.
