10. A statement indicating your ideas, intentions and/or the reason why
you consider you should be elected to serve in the ICANN Board
(no more than 500 words):

As a researcher, since late seventies, I have been constantly interested in monitoring the increase of complexity of the networks both for technical and managerial aspects.
As Director of CNUCE, an Institute of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), I promoted in the mid-eighties the interconnection of our institute to ARPAnet and the introduction of EARN (the European BITnet) in Italy. CNR/CNUCE was among the founding members of ISOC, and I have been active in ISOC activities and INET conferences; recently I served as officer in the Advisory Council, representing the organizational members of ISOC. I have been involved in the ccTLD ".it" since its beginnings, and I am now the administrator of that TLD. My institute (CNR/IAT) is also providing technical support to a few TLDs of developing countries. Lately, I have been involved in ICANN process, representing the ccTLDs constituency and I acted also as advisor of the Italian government representative in GAC.
With those experiences, I have the confidence to be able to provide a valuable support to the ICANN Board.
If elected, it is my intention to focus at least on the following aspects:
- the establishment of contractual relationships between ICANN and ccTLDs; I am convinced that this is an important achievement not only for ccTLDs but also for the stability and the funding of ICANN;
- the issue of legitimization of ccTLDs in their countries and, more generally, as a global entity; there is a growing interest on the part of the governments about the "Internet governance", not always with coherent approaches, and there is the need of a continuous sensitization and coordination efforts to preserve the unity of the network and an ordered development;
- the harmonization between the evolution of ccTLDs and gTLDs; this last point is particularly crucial at present times, with the ongoing discussion about "open" or "closed" TLD, and it is not easy to see how to reconcile conflicting interests, maintaining at the same time a compatibility with previous history.

(*) ICANN has indicated its desire to change the Bylaws to make the office of Member of the ICANN Board incompatible with the
the office of Member of the DNSO Names Council (the proposed amendments can be found at
http://www.icann.org/general/bylaws-changes-16sept99.htm). As this is not yet official, Members of the Names Council who wish
to be considered as candidates will be requested to state (just for information of the voters) if they will resign from the Names
Council if they are elected to the ICANN Board.

According to the proposed Bylaws amendments it is anticipated that a Names Council Member cannot vote or otherwise participate
in an election for ICANN Director in which that member is also a nominated candidate.
