You are now here: datademocracy > Legge 77/2020: why this webapp

Aims: see the link above (the main page explaining the datademocracy concept), i.e. to "democratize access to data".

Each "case" will contain a different "shape", or "source"- in some cases with data analysis and visualizations.

Whenever there will be an interim database to "distill" information from the source, it will be on Github, to enable further reuses without the need to reprocess the source data (sources will be always acknowledged and data tranformations and formatting documented).

Case 6: Legge 77/2020 Following the "Decreto Rilancio", on 2020-07-17 the Government Decree was converted into a law.

As it often happens in Italy, it wasn't a mere 1-to-1 transposition, but there were many adaptation, additions, and overall the law confirmed that, while nominally focused on the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, in reality both the Government Decree and this law introduced significant, long-term, structural changes, to be further completed by future decrees/laws.

Hence, following the CitizenAudit approach previously described on this site, decided to share some feed-back focused mainly on long-term and structural elements, first on the cultural/organizational side, then on the economic side.

The approach is based on the lifecycle impact: while from a public accounting perspective some elements might be correctly described as covering 2020 or, at most 2021-2022, and therefore associated funding is covering this timeframe, for any organization on the receiving end of the reforms, it should be considered the full timeframe impacted.

See the Method and Timeframe sections of this webapp for more information.

The full content of each decree is available on Github, via links provided within the search results that you will obtain by accessing the tag cloud.

From 2020-07-30 is also available a Kaggle Dataset (CSV) containing both the frequencies of the words within the law, as well as the classification by timeframe. Also, a Python notebook is available suggesting potential uses for the dataset- it will be evolved with examples over the next few months.

The database containing the full text of the law, divided according to the text of the law in sections and articles, is available on GitHub, to enable future updates.
