In 2012, a group of PhD students from University of Trento and FBK – Fondazione Bruno Kessler set out to empirically investigate the hypothesis that creating an onsite public display in the city of Trento, Italy’s public relations office would enhance civic participation. The students were interested in this study, because although nearly 55% of the total Italian population has internet access, that number drops to less than 12% for citizens over the age of 65.
