Saturday, March 4, for the International Open Data Day, the beta version of the Farma Valley Community Map will be presented in Torniella (GR), Southern Tuscany: meet us at 6PM in the Torniella Band/ARCI club in the main square of the village.
The event is in the line of initiatives that the Attivarti.org founders have been proposing since the birth of Attivarti.org, and even earlier, with their experiences in the Italian OSGEO Chapter (GFOSS.it), the BuioMetria Partecipativa project (where data are published with an open licence), and similar activities.
Attivarti.org already held an Open Data Day event in the Farma Valley back in 2013. This year our presence, in addition to promoting the importance of having events in lesser known locations, also extends its reach, creating a small network in Southern Tuscany, with one event before March 4, and one after.
At 6PM on Friday, March 3 in Scansano, at the cafe “La Posta” in Garibaldi square, we will have an opening meet-up. Here we will present to the local community the Farma Valley experiences and we will attempt to launch similar participatory mapping works, having received expressions of interest for this in the past months.
Finally, on March 5, at 6PM, at the Rinascita community club in Castelnuovo Val di Cecina, we will have a third meet-up, organized jointly with Associazione Il Tiglio, providing a summary of the two previous events, and without neglecting the participation of some components ofEtruschi from Lakota.
Last but not least, Saturday evening in Castelnuovo Val di Cecina you might want to check the live set by Eugenio Rodondi (just to chill out a little in the midst of our Open Data events).
The three-day string of events will be the prelude to the mission to Milano at the Fa’ la Cosa Giusta fair, where will will share with a large milanese audience our experiences from Southern Tuscany.
