This paper gives an overview on the Italian national CLARIN consortium as it currently stands two years after its creation at the end of 2015. It thus discusses the current state of affairs of the consortium on several aspects, especially with regards to members. It also discusses the events and initiatives that have been undertaken, as well as the ones that are planned in the close future. It finally outlines the conclusions of a user survey performed to understand the expectations of a targeted user population and provides indications regarding the next steps planned.
