Communication with simply being an intermediary between the source of information - where does the news - and recipients - we - influence the meaning of the message it carries. Conscious of the fact that we have always received information "transformed" by the words of those who described the facts, at best only slightly, sometimes in a deliberately manipulative and biassing way, and with the growing importance of information and the birth of the era of knowledge, the will of communities to produce their own informational environment with the idea of ​​freedom as a fulcrum is surging. With the rise of information technology and the spread of Web information we record the growth of a phenomenon grass-root, bottom, widespread and participatory, and less manipulable and controllable. The blogs, wikis, twitter, social networking, content sharing, the birth of a collective awareness, considered as a common good not adversely affected by the logic of the market, are the result of a collective effort that produces a pressing demand of trustable informations. In this context, the effort becomes the individual contribution of each of us for the production of a knowledge economy that rewards the individual as part of a collective action, the value of which is greater than the sum of the individual personal contributions.

Communication in our society is complex and interconnected and one of the most important factors to consider as a tool for the management of consent. The widespread control of data transmissions forces public opinion to reconsider the terms adopted so far, and taken for granted till now, within which was considered guaranteed the right itself to freedom of expression and privacy. The dichotomy between the alleged claims to ensure the national security and the guarantee of several rights considered fundamental in our modern societies, weighs heavily in the relationship between people and the power of governments - that should, as democratic and constitutionals, observe the principles that have inspired their creation.
More and more communication, made ​​by journalists and media that can truly be called independent and free, and not prone to political power and economic complexes, demonstrates its importance for society and for the respect of the rules and procedures that ensure its proper functioning.
