I'll write short overview of what I've done in this field to benefit
our deutschsprachige freunden which do not follow closely the italian
side of the Alps. I've been, in the years, active mainly in freeing
Public Administration data all across Italy, so far I've been
successful in freeing data of 3 italian regions, and, another region
joining in in about a week or so.

This said: At the moment I'm in negotiation with the Provinz to obtain
data to be legally imported in OSM.
