The report, addressed to citizens and professionals, addresses the introduction of technologies supporting the proximity detection on a smartphone App to face the COVID-19 epidemic. The study has three points of view. The first one introduces contact tracing, starting from the definition of the World Health Organization, independently from the digital techniques and is actually divided into three important steps: contact identification, contact listing, contact follow-up. The second point of view highlights the innovations of mobile technology based on smartphones not available during the diffusion of the pandemic caused by the virus SARS-CoV in 2003. The third point of view addresses the diffusion and evolution of these Apps through a state-of-the-art analysis. The report is also a dynamic tool updated on the basis of the evolution of technological solutions and the evidence emerging from the international scientific literature.
