Google received over 12,000 applications from 140 countries in just two weeks. The Eco di Bergamo was selected for this reason: “Data journalism techniques have helped local communities understand what is happening in the Bergamo area that suffered serious losses during the epidemic. The funds will be used to increase investments in new means of production (video, audio, photos, data) to provide readers with a more in-depth and analytical knowledge of what is happening in their territory “.
