One good place to start would be with the local branch offices of existing
LPI sponsors -- IBM, Caldera, SuSE, HP, etc. -- as these companies have
already made significant committments to LPI and they would (they
*should*) be willing to help advance LPI at a more-local level.
In Brazil, it would be obvious to try to talk to Connectiva. I remember
some early conversations we had with them, but we somehow lost touch and I
don't even remember who the contacts are. We would certainly do what we
can to help LPI-Brazil in attracting Connectiva as a sponsor.
As for Italy, I'm afraid I am not very familiar with the Linux landscape
there. We would be glad to help (to the extent we can, speaking English
and thousands of kilometres away :-).
