Crime in Northern Italy | Visual Exploration

  • Project selected and published on ADI Design Index 2015 - Targa Giovani.
    M.Sc Thesis - Master in Communication Design at Politecnico di Milano.
    The phenomenon of organized crime in Italy is current and urgent.
    The project, a visual analysis of organized crime in Northern Italy, aims to be a valuable tool to support the study of the phenomenon, providing to the users (journalists and academics) the ability to analyze the data extracted from the annual reports of the Direzione Nazionale Antimafia.
    The extractions of data were made possible thanks to the collaboration with Institute of computational linguistics "Antonio Zampolli" and ItaliaNLP Lab.
    The research covers the time period between 2000 and 2012 and allows for the analysis of trends and changes over time in nine provinces in Northern Italy.
    The design process was characterized by a continuous and constant dialogue with the users, so as to evaluate the usefulness, clarity and value of the project in all its phases.
    Project conceived and designed by Federica Fragapane.
    Data extraction by ItaliaNLP Lab.
