Al Gore in Rome: a success for the launch of italian Current_TV

I’m just back from Rome, where I witnessed the launch of the italian Current_TV, the first non-english-speaking version of it. I was invited at Jovinelli theatre together with about four hundred of other bloggers, technologists, journalists, students and such. It was a great idea (thank to friendly and hyper-energic Marco Montemagno and others), and a great occasion to meet some bloggers that I read, but never met in real life (Paolo Valdemarin, Massimo Mantellini…).

Al Gore, founder of Current_TV, was the main guest.

Enjoy some pictures I’ve taken with my modest Canon EOS 400D (you find these, and other, creative commons Attribution-only photos on my flickr account) :-)
