In this paper, we present the results of an ongoing research involving the design and implementation, in an eGovernment scenario, of a semantic-aware system supporting efficient and personalized access to a multi-version repository of norma- tive texts. The research activity is entitled “Semantic web techniques for the management of digital identity and the ac- cess to norms”. In the context of a complete and modular in- frastructure, we defined a multi-version XML data model and developed a temporal and semantical XML query processor supporting both temporal versioning –essential in normative systems– and semantic versioning. Semantic versioning is based on the applicability of different norm parts to different classes of citizens and allows users to retrieve personalized norm versions only containing provisions which are applica- ble to their personal case. The whole infrastructure, which we plan to complete in the near future, will integrate the query- ing component with several auxiliary services, including au- tomatic citizen identification and classification and assisted update of the repository data
