The organizer of the conference and the representative of the Department of Legal Sciences Ettore Maria Lombardi told about the idea of the conference:
"The development of the positive potential of technologies should be considered in the social, economic and environmental context. But the idea of digital humanism can be realized only in conditions of full integration, when different worlds and environments penetrate into each other, and their diversity becomes a value, not an obstacle. This is the meaning of our Digital Day initiative, which we wanted to emphasize with a title consisting of words from eight different languages: "Die jurnada globalny de les Liberties tecnologiche: para a digital humanismus".
