Marco, Ermanno and Carlo climb up tall towers to secure low cost antennas, often built with waste or recycled materials. Their goal is to make communication possible between hospitals and isolated villages in Africa, between remote islands of the Galapagos and between villages scattered in the Venezuelan Andes. The documentary explores the adventures of this remarkable team, following it on one of its trips in Africa. This little story is part of the great world changes illuminated by the technological revolution and it gives food for thought on a universal subject concerning access to communication and knowledge.

The CLOMMUNITY project aims at addressing the obstacles for communities of citizens in bootstrapping, running and expanding community-owned networks that provide community services organised as community clouds. That requires solving specific research challenges imposed by the requirement of: self-managing and scalable decentralized infrastructure services for the management and aggregation of a large number of widespread low-cost unreliable networking, storage and home computing resources; distributed platform services to support and facilitate the design and operation of elastic, resilient and scalable service overlays and user-oriented services built over these underlying services, providing a good quality of experience at the lowest economic and environmental cost.
