Fulvio Sarzana wiill speaks about the app chosen by Italian government  that is called “Immuni” and has been the subject of intense debate among politicians, experts and parts of civil society, a debate which contributed to a significant shift in focus, both in terms of the software’s architecture and of the way citizens will be required to use it.

Italy has in fact introduced a decentralized exposure notification management system.

The decentralized model  chosen by Italy should interact with Apple and Google efforts to create a platform that would allow every smartphone to build a decentralized record of the other phones it has interacted with, without having to upload it to an external server.

The app system is  in fact based on a mixed decentralized and  centralized model.

 It means that exposure notification system takes place at the device level of individual smartphone owners  but citizens’ infection data and identifiers would have been stored in an external database managed by the government.
