    The infographic represents the number of residents of Matera (in Southern Italy) with the same surname. The number of people with matching surnames is illustrated by the size of the text and the value printed in red. The larger the font size, the higher the number of people sharing the same surname.
     
    The poster can be viewed in two ways:
    Observation from afar, whereby only the larger and most common surnames
    will be legible.
    Close observation — immerging oneself in the literature only to discover a few surprises, such as the coexistence of foreign names alongside the more traditional.
     
    The infographic was designed using the Open Data of the City of Matera. Dataset updated 31/12/2013.
    Poster 70×100cm, offset printing on glossy coated paper (150g Burgo).
