On Tuesday 19 February 2013 Minister Giulio Terzi will chair a workshop at the foreign ministry in Rome entitled “Digital Media in War Zones”, organised by the foreign ministry in collaboration with WIRED Italia.
Digital strategy experts will meet to compare notes on the “2.0 information” sector in areas geographically distant but which many Italians perceive as very nearby thanks to documentation provided by military personnel on missions, cooperation workers, journalists and bloggers.
Journalists and camera operators interested in covering the event are asked to apply for accreditation by completing the interactive form available at the link http://mae.accreditationsystem.info/ITA/Indice.asp to which all required documentation can be attached in digital format.
If in exceptional cases it is not possible to complete the online accreditation procedure, applications in writing on company letterhead and signed by the director of the organisation concerned—indicating name, surname, date and place of birth, number of a valid ID document and qualification—should be sent by fax to the Press Office of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (tel. 063691.3432 fax 06.3691.2122).
Accredited members of the press will be admitted at the main entrance to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (lefthand side) between the hours of 9:15 and 9:45, and no later.
