I’m the community manager for OpenCoesione School, a project aimed at engaging high school students, through practice-based learning that results in a data journalism and storytelling project on OpenCoesione projects’ impact.
OpenCoesione is the first national portal on cohesion policy with transparent information on each funded project: regular bimonthly updates have nurtured open data on almost 800k projects so far, which can be freely re-used (CC 3.0 BY-SA license) and explored interactively on the portal using maps, filters and detailed forms on projects and recipients.
Thanks to the OpenData published on OpenCoesione, I’ve taken part to the Monithon initiative: a group of developers, activists and journalists (and me too) put online website using the Ushahidi platform. Moni-thon (literally “monitoring marathon”), promotes citizen monitoring of cohesion policy (EU Structural Funds) through active involvement of communities and a shared methodology.
I’m also contributor of Neural magazine, critical digital arts & culture since 1993 (neural.it).
Previous experience: Content Management for Neural.it and Akubari.it, media educator for Radiokreattiva.net (anti-mafia web-radio for children).
