Floating Population Dataset for Bologna had been released

Downtown Bologna

With almost 1 million visitors a month, Downtown Bologna is still open for businesses. February was the most crowded month of the year with 989,224 visitors followed by January. The number of visitors in the area is quite high in January and February but starts to decrease in March. This trend can be understood in regards to the pandemic. In Italy, number of COVID-19 cases showed a sign of decrease until mid-February but rebounds and starts to increase in its number again, which explains the decreasing number of the visitors.
