The entire project fits perfectly with the objectives promoted by the PNRR, which – Aruba recalls – in terms of “digitization, innovation, competitiveness and culture”, has placed particular emphasis on the issue of the implementation of digital infrastructures and on the question of data and interoperability. “With particular pride it can be said that, in this process of approving the new standard, the contribution of Italy and the experience acquired thanks to the success of Certified Electronic Mail, born in Italy 16 years ago, was essential. long-term success witnessed by the official numbers of Agid: the first two months of 2021 opened with record numbers for the Pec with almost 383 million messages exchanged and a total of over 12 million and 700 thousand mailboxes activated to date “notes Aruba. Finally, Mangiulli points out that “the Pec will soon become a qualified certified delivery system that can be used in Europe and this milestone will allow all users to use their Certified Email address in communications with the Public Administration or for those to users, entities and businesses.
