MILENA Gabanelli IN SMALL OFFICE
The good news today is science.

Almost all civil servants today to do their job have a computer.

Need to use many programs and programs cost money.

In Bolzano have found a way to save a lot '. Giuliano Marrucci.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
This is one of 83 English language schools in the province. 50 computers that until two years ago cost 100 euros each a year only for the programs.

GIULIANO Marrucci
With these 100 euros for computer what to buy ?

PAUL ZILOTTI-School Superintendent
We always bought the latest version of the operating system and office suite.

GIULIANO Marrucci
So office ?

PAUL ZILOTTI-School Superintendent
Office.

GIULIANO Marrucci
And enough ?

PAUL ZILOTTI-School Superintendent
End !

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Operating system and Office suite are the gasoline of the computer, without those you can not do anything.

For us ordinary mortals are synonymous with windows and office, commercial programs produced by microsoft, but ordinary mortals often wrong.

BARBARA REPETTO Department for work Prov. Bolzano
The alternative is the free software, which we as a government we are committed in these two years, we had to migrate from microsoft free software for all schools of the Italian province of Bolzano.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Free software works just like the commercial, but it's free.

While the microsoft licenses each year for the Italian language schools in the province is paid 269.000 euros a year.

GIULIANO Marrucci
So what practically until yesterday you paid 269.000 euros a year, the same thing now you do it free ?

BARBARA REPETTO Department for work Prov. Bolzano
To 27.000 euros, as maintenance is a maintenance cost.

GIULIANO Marrucci
Then one-tenth

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
And without giving up anything, even ... ...

PAUL ZILOTTI-School Superintendent
We wanted to make sure that when comparing the software to the textbook, students could take home this book, it could copy, all in a legal manner.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Eh already, because the beauty of free software is that it can be freely copied.

And so what we use at school, you can take home.

GIULIANO Marrucci
What are these so-here ?

EZIO-MONASTERO Coord. Group tutorial of information technology
These allow the installation to house distribution FUSS we have done for schools.

That is, there are educational software that are used in primary, secondary and higher education.

GIULIANO Marrucci
How many disks as you distribute this ?

EZIO-MONASTERO Coord. Group tutorial of information technology
I think a 20.000 diskettes. The cost was the printing of the cd's, 4000/5000 euros

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
And so to save money over to the public are also the families, because if a school is using commercial programs, it is up to buy a license for home.

EZIO-MONASTERO Coord. Group tutorial of information technology
Unless you pass the normal operation of several that download not lawful.

GIULIANO Marrucci
Then we impose a charge or a crime ?

EZIO-MONASTERO Coord. Group tutorial of information technology
Exactly, a school should instead educate the law.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Simple no ? Bolzano and yet remains an isolated case.

BARBARA REPETTO Department for work Prov. Bolzano
Inside the jam is the fact that this step requires a very considerable effort, since in the sphere of training of the school, is the government who is dealing with, not always in this kind of administration is this propulsive thrust towards innovation, towards change.

GIULIANO Marrucci
That is like saying money since our son ... ....

BARBARA REPETTO Department for work Prov. Bolzano
Yes, there is some 'resistance to change, that should make more effort in, is the speech of those who makes me the word no ?

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Here thinked a boy who came from Argentina.

ANTONIO RUSSO
I came here from Argentina, from Buenos Aires, in'99, two years before the crisis,
I worked for a bank that I knew before that there was something that did not work very well.

GIULIANO Marrucci
You could say to us ...

ANTONIO RUSSO
I could definitely say it but I would have believed.

BARBARA REPETTO Department for work Prov. Bolzano
Yes, there is some 'resistance to change, that should make more effort in, is the speech of those who makes me the word no ?

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Used to say things that others do not believe, just landed in Bolzano, Anthony is taken as an accountant by training for the province, a strategic location to launch the battle for the
free software.

ANTONIO RUSSO
We started in 2001 by organizing vocational training courses aimed at business from an idea that we believed that the system was already mature, and could use it for productivity, and companies, public administrations.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Moreover, to demonstrate that free software was a mature Bolzano was the Sad, the local transport company, the first in the world to use in a corporate environment nearly 15 years ago, saving time by about 300.000 euro for year.

GIULIANO Marrucci
You are Genoan isn't true ?

MAURIZIO CACHIA Dir computing SAD-local transport
I am of Genoese origin.

GIULIANO Marrucci
It's for that...

MAURIZIO CACHIA Dir computing SAD-local transport
I am Genoan, I live in Val di Non, say that the valley is not a Genova of Trentino ...

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Building on this example, Antonio begins to knock at the doors of all offices of the province.

First stage, the consortium of municipalities.

GIULIANO Marrucci
Antonio has convinced ?

HUGO Leiter - Dir Information Service Prov. Bolzano

He was of great help, is extraordinary. I have to admire what he has managed to do.

HUGO Leiter - Dir Information Service Prov. Bolzano
If we were to replace all the software proprietary software with open should spend at least half a million.

GIULIANO Marrucci
One-off ?

HUGO Leiter - Dir Information Service Prov. Bolzano
One-off, these must be added the annual costs of management, upgrade and maintenance.

GIULIANO Marrucci OUTSIDE FIELD
Second stage training agricultural and forestry where the free software they use to make courses on the internet.

But the fun is yet to come. Why migrate largest they made about 4500 pc of the province, from microsoft office to his free, open office.

GIULIANO Marrucci
And how much you save ?

Hellmuth LADURNER Dir-sharing computer Prov. Bolzano
More than one million euros a year.

GIULIANO Marrucci
Eh ?

Hellmuth LADURNER Dir-sharing computer prov. Bolzano
More than one million euros a year.

MILENA Gabanelli IN SMALL OFFICE
Free software you can 'download from the internet and there are also instructions to install it.

And while we would also be a good thing if public officials who try to be awarded a bonus, to encourage all Antonio Russo that there are around.
