I’ve been working in the field of data journalism since 2016, after my graduation in Science in Communication, with a thesis titled "Data Journalism: the precision journalism in the age of Big Data". Exactly because of my thesis I started analysing and visualizing data, learning Tableau for this purpose. I published my first article and visualization on Il Sole24Ore before of my graduation, thanks to Andrea Gianotti and Luca Tremolada. I’ve published more than 60 articles on Il Sole 24 Ore and something also on other newspaper website, such as La Gazzetta dello Sport, covering different topics, from politics to cinema, to sports and more. I work combining tools like Photoshop, Illustrator and Tableau for visualization (Currently I’m also a Tableau Ambassador) and Alteryx for scraping, data cleansing, data preparation, predictive and spatial analysis. As data journalist and storyteller, my mission is to create data-driven interactive content, using my skills to clean and analyse data. For me the design of the visualization is really important, something beetween science and art. Every image, every visual representation brings a story. We can create accurate dataviz from the data point of view, but we need more to communicate what data are telling us. Especially regarding data journalism, where we need to talk to unskilled people, to as many people as possible. My purpose is not only to give the information. I want to try to have people play with my data while they’re going trough the story that I want to tell them.
