And compared to the Netherlands, that guideline was even supposed to have
"teeth". Out of the FSFE news item  back then:
"Importantly, the new rules come with a mechanism to ensure they are
followed. Both public bodies and the interested public can ask the
Italian Digital Agency to check if a given organisation is following
the correct procedure. Administrative courts can annul decisions that
contradict these rules. In case of negligence, individual public
servants may be held personally liable."
