A more positive word: everybody thought the same just a few years ago,
also here in Italy, but now things are definitely changed: our national
reference INSPIRE implementations are largely based on GFOSS, and the
Italian community is sizeable, mature, very active and vociferous.
Things *can* change, and they do it rapidly.
All the best.
