Our values

We strongly believe in accessibility, in Open Source, in Creative Commons, in Open Access, and most importantly in the Open Web. In order to live in a free society, the technology used in that society must be free (as in speech). For this reason our workflow is stuffed with open source software and with open liceneses, and we encourage our customers to pick copyleft licenses whenever it is possible, in order to encourage the free reuse of assets. We think this is not just an ideological position, it is in the best interests of both us and out customers.

On the internet data is not scarce, but attention is limited. The current restrictive approach taken by the Italian (and French) cultural institutions is risky. In the short term it comes off as elitist, and in the long term it could discourage the rest of the world from paying attention to our cultural heritage, resulting in a loss of mind-share. At the same time, it has never resulted in significant cash flows.
