Artwork for Visual Data, the column on "La Lettura", the cultural supplement of "Corriere Della Sera".
The visualization shows the 50 most violent cities in the world in 2017. Cities are arranged o the vertical axis according to population and ordered along the horizontal axis according to the homicide rate (per 100,000 inhabitants). For each city the following data have been visualized: the number of homicides committed in 2017, the geographical region, the country of origin and the variation in the number of homicides compared to 2016. An aggregate recap of the countries in the ranking and a focus on homicides in Italy have then been shown.
