With some other italian friends we are participating and collaborating to the Italian Linux Distro Network [ildn]. Recently the founding members of the initiative has built a real, legally recognized Association promoting the diffusion of Linux in Italy.

One of the latest project at work is the collection and the cleaning of the SIX HUNDRED little how-to/guides produced by the portals in these two years under the wiki structure of ILDNpedia [I’ll put the link when it will be available to general public].
We have also an informal logo contest going on. This is what my friend Mufulone has submitted to us:
