Short Description

The manual is very cartoonish in style, in typical google fashion. Nonetheless, very catchy and appealing in graphics, visuals and overall aesthetics. The Journey through the “Interland” of this granpa and his two nephews is a metaphor that symbolize the first Internet experience of someone that never related with the WWW before.

Interland includes five main landscapes, one for each of the five key principles for a safe and responsible browsing experience:

• Mount Responsible, for the use of common sense
• Reality River, for critical thinking and judgement
• Gentle Kingdom, for a socially responsible use
• Treasure Tower, for open and transparent communication


The official metric reported by Repubblica Digital (the Ministry of Innovation and diital transition’s strategy for people’s digital empowerment) gives just indication of “number of people involved”. As we speak, that are no stats available on this.

As an alternative to official stats, we can look into the search frequency of “Internald” in the GOOGLE engines for the last 12 months:
