On 24-25 February 2017, GEN and Gruppo L’Espresso, with the support of the Google News Lab, gathered some of the best Italian media innovators in Rome for an Editors Lab focused on crisis and disaster reporting. With increased seismic activity in the region, this hackathon marked the six-month anniversary of the August 2016 Central Italy earthquake. The winning team was the team from La Stampa, with their project: News Light. The event web site (archive.is). L’ESPRESSO – ROME – selected projects (archive.is). Special thanks to Francesca Anzalone.
