Introduction

Italy's current legal framework for access to information is based on the civic access law from 2013. The civic access law reform of 2016 now gives the right to ask for access to *all* information, not just that which should be proactively published. Previous to this reform, the legal framework used by the RTI Rating was based on the law from 1990 on administrative documents (which required requesters provide a reason for access and prove a "direct interest" to obtain the document). Law in Italian: Riordino della disciplina riguardante il diritto di accesso civico e gli obblighi di pubblicitá , trasparenza e diffusione di informazioni da parte delle pubbliche amministrazioni
