One of the output was this visualization realized for la Lettura (Corriere della Sera) in which is shown the current scenery about online data from its creation to the public perception of the phenomenon. It outlines the three main actors involved in this flow: people, companies and governments. The main focus of the visualization is the willingness to trade personal data in exchange for services.
