Hi Guptha:
Most SMS providers (you'd be dealing with resellers mostly) have some kind
of HTTP API to send SMS (even bulk SMS, upto a point). So you using standard
Python HTTP module to invoke the SMS provider API.

For SMS service providers, just google thru or search yellow pages in your
region of operation. There are several Global providers as well, who provide
ability to send SMS to almost any country around the world.

As for Matteo's site, it is Italian (I think). Try Google or Altavista
website translation engine, and you should manage to browse thru it.
