Description of the project Iperbole is an institutional digital platform for the commons. It is a unique example in the Italian context, the City of Bologna heavily invested in the role of communication and digital media to foster the dimension of transparency within the Open Government framework, interconnected with the Regulation for the Urban commons.

“This strong interconnection shows how the City of Bologna values online civic participation as a tool for enhancing offline civic participation. Iperbole_Comunità is a space, both static and interactive, which is aimed at promoting and facilitating the transparency of the process of definition of the pacts of collaboration. The civic pacts’ proposals and the final version of the pacts are published on Iperbole_Comunità. It also hosts an interactive space allowing the users to interact on the platform and discuss over the pacts of collaboration and on potential urban commons problems.” (E. De Nictolis, Ivana Pais)
