Internet and the informatic systems offer new opportunities to make social and legal reality. Nevertheless, when using informatic systems, the distinction between acts and documents, and between the execution and the evidence of a (legal) act, seem to collapse: the (legal) act, and the institutional facts, created by the act, are only possible with the production of a digital document, which allows to track the acts and the institutional facts themselves. Thus, it seems that the social reality is only possible if we can give evidence of it. Is this suggestion correct? Which is the relationship between digital documents and papers? Which are the roles documents have in the juridical experience? Which role should be played by the digital documents in law? Here, I aim to provide some starting points in order to answer the above questions.
