Experience citizen science with "Sapienza": Mosquito alert with and for active and digital citizenship.

Mosquito Alert Italia is a Citizen Science project coordinated by the University of Rome Sapienza, which involve citizens in the collection of data on mosquito in Italy by an app for smartphone. Data are exploited by researchers to study and monitor mosquito species present in the country – from the native night mosquito to the invasive species such as the tiger Asian mosquito – and to identify the most infested areas, in order to ultimately contribute to prevent nuisance and risk of transmission of viruses, such as West Nile.
