Translation process
A first draft of the Italian translation was made available on the CC wiki in May 2013 ( The draft circulated internally among the legal experts of CC Italia and the fellows of the Nexa Center for feeds and comments. In March 2015 a final public comment period was opened: the double-checked version was shared through the CC Italia mailing lists, while further dissemination of the public comment period was channelled through the CC Italia website and CC Italia-related social media. The last round of minor changes and modifications, agreed with the CC HQ legal team is documented on GitHub (

Web site:

Federico Morando (CC Italia Project Lead) Massimo Travostino (legal expert - member of the CC Italia working group) Alessandro Cogo (legal expert - member of the CC Italia working group) Claudio Artusio (member of the CC Italia working group) Marco Ricolfi (Scientific Coordinator of the CC Italia legal working group). In addition to the above, the first translation was drafted by Angelo Maria Rovati, Silvia Bisi and Francesco Ermini.

Word choice
the translation adheres as closely as possible to the original English text: "the"Affirmer" was translated as "il Dichiarante", which literally translates "the Declarant" and appeared to be the nearest acceptable word. (Similarly, "the Waiver" was translated as "la Rinuncia", which would literally translate as "the Renounciation/Abdication" - but in this case "Waiver" itself would also be a perfectly standard re-translation.) "Licenza Pubblica in Subordine" (i.e., literally "public license in the alternative") is our translation for the English "Public License Fallback": the Italian translation may sound slightly unusual or ambiguous, but this is actually a term defined within the CC0 legal text, therefore no legal uncertainty is generated by the rather complex choice of words.

Yes I confirm that the team understands that this will be a translation of CC0 and not an adaptation.
