In this paper we present a necessarily brief overview of the legal and regulatory aspects of Open Government Data in Italy. The thesis of the article is that in Italy some regulatory issues and a still inadequate culture do not allow this innovation to fully develop its potential. Despite those critical elements, in the last few years a growing number of local governments have opened up their public data and published them on the web, allowing users to reuse them for broad purposes. In this regard, the paper considers the example of the strategy of opening up public sector information of the autonomous province of Trento.
