There is much interest in Italy and abroad in utilizing the Internet to improve communications between governments and citizens. The Internet has great potential to provide individuals greater access to their governments, while at the same time improving efficiency and cutting bureaucratic red tape. Such objectives require adequate strategies on the slope of the technological adjustment, but they also imply the same incisive interventions on the organizational dimension - for the demand to project again the processes of jobs and the procedures on the base of the ICT - to manage the runs of change. The objective of this paper is to analyze, in the light of the cultural, economic and technological factors, the state of the e-Government of the public administration in Italy. In particular the present study briefly examines the notion of e-Government and its different meanings and emphasizes its importance. The data form the Cranet database is used in this analysis.
