I asked google to translate it for me. I especially like this part:

 "...called "digital literacy" to convey the appropriate knowledge and
 skills in the use of new technologies for faculty and students from
 schools in all levels, promote competition among students to encourage
 them to use their imagination, passion and creativity to find
 solutions to concrete problems through new technologies."

Thanks to your link, I had a few more key words to look for and found

where google translates a passage to:

It talks about "two pilot projects". It would be really interesting how
many schools will be involved with the Microsoft agreement.

Any hints?

Well, in any event, for those of you who want to get active in Italy,
