[liberationtech] Frei PiratenPartei

A  Pirate Party do exist in Italy and it is particularly active in
spreading the use of LiquidFeedback, the software platform developed to
support the internal decision-making process of the German Pirate Party . 

In Italy  LiquidFeedback has also been used to support online deliberation
by several local groups of the MoVimento 5 Stelle (probably known outside
Italy as as Beppe Grillo's movement).
We have used it  in large civic context, involving generic citizens, in
occasion  of the recent elections in the Lombardy region
(http://lf.proposte.ambrosolilombardia2013.it/lqfb.php: it is in Italian,
but at least for the menu you can select the English).

The outcomes of this experience are quite interesting and we will present 
them in the ePart2013 conference http://www.epart-conference.org/.
A member of the Pirate Party and myself have been asked to present the
software (the pirate) and the above initiative (myself) to the IS office
of the Italian Senate, that published last week a  report on "civic media"
 in which LiquidFeedback is mentioned  as one of the relevant software
platforms.
