Comments for the authors "The paper is too focused in the specific context of the domain in Italy. It would be desirable that the authors will expose how to transfer the experience to other similar contexts.
In addition, it would be desirable to have a review of the state of the art that will help readers to understand how this problem is managed by other solutions."
