The press release issued today by the Italian Minister of Education together with an official communication to Italian Schools starts by assessing the key importance of coding as a transversal field of study.

Taking advantage of the double meaning of the Italian verb “programmare” (to program), which means both “to plan” and “to code”, the Italian Government has announced an initiative called “Programma il futuro” (Plan/code your future) aimed at making available to Italian schools the methods and the teaching materials of Code.org.

The initiative wil be launched during CodeWeekEU,  11-17 October, 2014.
