is a website where you can comment Italy’s President Mr. Mario Monti’s public speeches phrase by phrase. The idea behind, coming from (focused on the speeches of EU Commissioner Neelie Kroes), is that politicians’ speeches are important for shaping the policy debate, but they are too often designed as one-way messages. CommentMario then aims at opening up conversations around them, by introducing new tools for increasing the quality of users comments.

CommentMario also includes speeches from former Minister Fabrizio Barca of Territorial Cohesion as part of the Minister communication strategy (the website of the Ministry contains a link to the CommentMario platform).
