Abstract

The present paper aims to contribute to draw and understand a realistic scenario of what we can term e-Citizenry even if, as stated many times, “prediction is difficult, especially if it involves the future! ” Sometimes this term simply identifies members of the network, Internet users. This paper identifies as “e-Citizen” a Citizen surrounded by both public administration’s and commercial’s digital services and the transition from his traditional role and behaviour to the new ones. Of course, we cannot forget the huge set of services provided by private organisations as the completion of the scenario. The major part of the population has already started this journey from Citizens to e-Citizens; they already ask and receive certificates on line, book a medical service and receive the feedbacks on line or pay taxes and vote in this way. Anyway, this is a critical process involving opportunities and threats, benefits and drawbacks. In addition, there is a gap to be bridged due to cultural behaviours, age and education.
