Claudia Rossati


CSI-Piemonte (Consortium for Information Systems)was founded by the Piedmont Region, the University of Turin and the Polytechnic of Turin in 1977 with the aim of promoting the modernization of local administration by using the most advanced information and IT-based tools to createinformation services and systems.


52 Consortium members: including municipalities, local health bodies, hospitals,etc.

over1,000 employees

  • The provinces: (District Council) Torino, Cuneo, Asti, Alessandria, Vercelli, Novara, Biella, Verbania

  • Municipalities: there are 1.206 municipalities

What is the ‘Sistema Piemonte’ portal?

  • Sistema Piemonte was set up as a regional portal and “virtual reference desk” for Public Administration (PA) in Piedmont (the 3 reference bodies are: the Piedmont Regional Authority, the Province of Turin and the Municipality of Turin)

  • The project is subscribed by 102 Municipalities, 8 Provinces, and the Region of Piedmont

  • It responds to the need to improve relations between the PA and citizens and companies, aiming for greater transparency and efficiency while promoting Piedmont’s PA as an “integrated system”.

  • It is aprivileged access point to the services directly supplied by the departments of the Public Administration to citizens and companies, a computerised front-office with the ambition of streamlining the procedures for interactions between citizens and Public Administration.

Access to the services
Access to the services

  • Access to the services is made easier by the use of a contents page where the services are grouped from different perspectives, such as:

    • A list organised by area of interest in alphabetical order

    • A list organised by the life events of citizens

    • A list organised by company events

    • A search engine within the site

The thematic channels
The thematic channels

  • The thematic channels of Sistema Piemonte are actually highly specialised, themed portals. They provide services for specific, regular users, which could potentially increase the catchment area of the entire portal.

    In fact, citizens can make use of the services of different channels: those who pay “ICI online” (Council Tax) can also get information about their family doctor.

  • The reference users of Sistema Piemonte are synergically related to the users of the subject channels, and this allows an authentic virtuous circle to be established.

  • Within the Sistema Piemonte framework, they share a common infrastructure: the registration and authentication system, the search engine, the payment engine, newsletters for specific areas of interest and, lastly, a consolidated identity of the Public Administration for citizens and companies.
