The week in Italian startups - Issue #1
Things are going particularly dire in Italy (and abroad) - this might not be the best of times to start a startup-related newsletter, yet I feel it is about time we start being a bit more visible, a bit more open. Every Sunday (or so), in this column you will find the news I found most representative of what is going on here.
Enjoy the journey!
