Wired Italy has also launched a dedicated campaign, ‘Internet for Peace’, which will carry on till September 2010, featuring different stories and experiences of those who with the web have tried to do something concrete to promote peace and harmony in the world.

“Internet has clearly shown to be not only a network of computers connected together across the world or a container for web pages accessible to users, but a precious and powerful tool for global communication, capable to overcome walls and distances imposed by political and military constraints,” according to Wired Italy.

“We have to look at the Internet as a huge community where men and women from all over the world and with very different religious views can communicate and sympathize, spreading a new culture centred on collaboration and sharing of knowledge that breaks all barriers,” Riccardo Luna, editor-in-chief, Wired Italy, has said.
