Open Expo is Launched, the Transparency Platform for Expo Milano 2015

This afternoon saw the publication of the first tranche of data relating to the organization and economic management of Expo Milano 2015 and the progress of work on the Expo worksite. The project OpenExpo which is being launched on the Transparent Administration section of the Site was presented in Rome at the offices of Italy’s Foreign Press Association. It was presented by the Commissioner the Italian Government for Expo Milano 2015, Giuseppe Sala; the President of Wikitalia, Riccardo Luna; the Director of the Agency for Digital Italy, Alessandra Poggiani; and Giovanni Menduni, Professor at the Politecnico di Milano. It was also attended by Italy’s Minister of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, Maurizio Martina, and the Minister of Public Administration and Simplification, Marianna Madia.

The company Expo 2015 S.p.A. has decided to achieve the maximum level of transparency around the event, making it possible for all citizens and users of the web to see the management activities and works on site thanks to its open data platform built with Wikitalia.

OpenExpo makes data available on credits for goods, services and works and on the rates of progress of works under way on its building sites. It is also possible to download, consult and navigate datasets. The data are also processed in the form of dynamics infographics constantly updated to offer a clear, immediate status report on works and, more generally, across the entire event.

"Today - said Commissioner Sala – we are making a promise to upgrade the platform in a timely manner, so that it will contain data on the evolution of the semester." "With this project - Minister Martina added – we are betting on a unique experiment for our country." For minister Madia this is a project "that will help us to re-establish a relationship of trust with citizens that over the years has been worn down by parties and governments. To recover their trust - she explained – we have to use new technologies," which must become "business as usual".
